really like this. would like it more with out the yellow "tab" at the top. Just a simple name in red to match the flag would be cute.

This is so cute! This is just an idea... but my first reaction was - it would be so cool to see newspaper print used in the different shapes of the boat... maybe like multiplied over the various shapes so that it maintains the depth? Very cute though!!
