Since I don't have the horizontal stitched strips, I decided to try something new. I cut the kraft paper and trimmed the edges with a scalloped border from a Blueprints die. I thought it needed a pop of color so I made my square out of sour apple. The scallops reminded me of water but not ocean so I pulled out a very old sentiment set called Blue Skies, added some drops to it and to the die cut drops for more of a rainy feel. I love the way it turned out.
