Dreaming of Maui (again)!

Banner day today!  Second card, second post.  How about a little dream about Maui, or at least about sitting on a beach and watching a beautiful sunset.
This stamp set is from Our Craft Lounge (again) and is called 'Sandy Sunsets'
The scene was stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink.  The background was brayered in with various Memento inks.  There is a paper button and a sailors knot (tutorial) made with kitchen twine.  The scene was die cut with a spellbinder, cut into thirds with the center piece slightly larger than the edge pieces.  It was then mounted with pop dots onto a piece of black card stock also cut with a spellbinder die.  Some glossy accents on the sunset, some white gel ink highlights and the card was complete.

This card may be entered in the following challenges:
Our Craft Lounge:  Use natural or colored bakers twine
Inspiration Avenue:  Tropical
Cards for Men:  For someone special
Creative Belli:  The letter 'S' (sunset)
Some Odd Girl:  Make a Scene
Stamp Something:  Beachy Colors (how bout the whole beach!)
Delicious Doodles:  Let the Sun Shine
