HCTB Challenge 3 : Sailing ship

Morning Folks!

I can't believe it is Sunday again already and I'm even more surprised that we are about to start challenge 3 over at Here Come the Boys - it doesn't seem 5 minutes since we first started!!

This time we'd like to see creations for

Father's Day (or Hubbys / Partners)

We are being sponsored by our fabulous DT Member
Lynne Salmon and her Online Craft Shop!

Here's my card:

My Dad loves anything to do with the sea so I've used a new stamp that I thought would be perfect for him from Crafty Individuals called Navigation. I've only stamped out a couple of the elements from the plate. The backing paper is yonks old from HOTP, the charm is from Ewe2cancraft, attached with garden string! I only had quite bright gold card candy, so I've given it a coat of gold marker pen to dull it down a bit!! I've also decorated the inside- it is for a special occasion after all!!

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges

Creative Craft challenges: Blue, brown and cream
Creative Card Crew: Anything goes
Charisma Cardz: Boy Oh Boy
Totally Gorjuss: Strings the thing
Craft Your Days Away: Father's Day / special man
My Partner in Crafting Crime: Twine, Jute or String
Dream Valley Challenges: Stamp something

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!
