Shall We Go A-Sailing?

Soooooo, I finally made it back from my catch-up with the Fairy Godmother - 4 hours later - and managed to make another card.  I had intended to make loads this weekend, but that didn't quite happen.

Anyway, this is my second card made using a purchase from my trip to LOTV yesterday.

I made this card using one of the boy stamps and coloured it with distress inks.  I then layered it onto some textured yellow paper.  I also used this paper as the main mat paper for the card.  I chose yellow to match the little boy's t-shirt.

I followed the sketch over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp and used papers from my LOTV cakes and candles paper pad.

Before adding the image panel, I wrapped some blue and white stripey ribbon, then some red ribbon and then some narrow dark red ribbon around the panel.

I then added the image panel. 

To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment and layered it onto some red spotty paper (to match the centre DP panel) and then stamped a boat in the top right hand corner and coloured with Promarkers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!



  1. Thank you so much for entering our current challenge '#31 A Card For A Male' over in the "Left Of Centre" Challenge Blog.

    A lovely male card for any age....this would take older men back to their childhoods. Lovely bright colours which work well with the minimal colouring of the image.
