Ocean Quest
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
Sweet Sketch 49
Sponsor: Pixie Dust Studio

I was so excited when I saw this image on Pixie Dust Studio. It made me want to just ride along for the adventure! I was in the middle of creating my card when I viewed Carrie's card on SSW on the week of April 14 for Sweet Sketch 45. I loved how she tied the rope to her button. So when I realized that there was a rope in this image I decided to create a break away look with the rope. I was going to use twine but the color wasn't the right shade so I pulled out my scrapper's floss and started hand crocheting it and came up with this. Thanks Carrie for your inspiration!

This is Sweet Sketch 49 for this week!
