Birthday boats

Evening all,

I'm back again with a birthday card I have made for my other half's Dad. I normally find male cards a little challenging but this one seemed to come together quite easily for a change!

I have used a fab digi image from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps (In the Harbour by Delicious Doodles) and coloured it with ProMarkers in sepia tones. The edges are inked with Vintage Photo distress ink.

The panel behind was embossed using an embossing folder from the 'Forever Friends' range and then inked with Vintage Photo. I cut the lovely Amira Flourish die from Memory Box in two and fixed it behind the main image

I tied some knots around the panel with some twine and added a sail boat charm, a stamped sentiment and some brads to finish.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:

One Stitch At A Time - Use a digi
Die-ing For A Challenge - Brown and Blue

Thanks for looking

See you soon x
