Sail away

Hardwood stamp making yet another appearance, I think this is going to be one on the most useful stamps I've ever had, it seems to go with anything. Made this quick and simple card for Cardz4guyz challenge which is not to use any designer papers. The ship is from an old Artemio set ,everything stamped in archival cobalt blue.  I think I'll probably add a sentiment to the bottom left hand corner when  I decide where the card is going.
Cardz4guyz. - Do not use any patterned paper
