Ahoy Matey

Hi There!

Today i have a card for Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. Its i busy so far this week final test is tomorrow so i've been studying for that, getting my design team assignments done and this weekend i'll be working on a guest designer projects that you can see next month! (yay!)

I finished this card this past week and just had time today to get pictures taken. The inspiration is a nautical theme:

I have no nautical stamp but luckily i have some wood veneer pieces that fit the theme. I found some pattern paper that could have a nautical feel to it. The picture had some blue and yellow so i found a white and blue stripe pattern. And then for the yellow i found yellow pattern and wood paper.

To make it a littler more 'nautical' i added a strip of navy blue paper and red washi tape across my yellow pattern paper.

I wrapped some white and silver hemp cord around the yellow pattern paper and then added the wood veneer.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
