Nautical card for a man

Despite a madly-busy day yesterday I was awake obscenely early (for a Sunday). Even earlier than a weekday.

But I got up and did a pile of crafting in my pyjamas, so this is good.

Here’s a card for Jay Gee’s Nook challenge #9, to be inspired by this fab montage from Joy:
Jay Gee's Nook card challenge 9And seeing the new Ribbon Girl challenge #10 – ‘Shades of Aqua’ too, here’s my card:

I went for the fresh monochrome look using some glittery paper strips cut with scallop scissors for the waves and I stamped the dinky boat from Woodware’s ‘By the Sea‘ clear set (FRCL037).
I added a cute journaling sticker snipped down to size (American Crafts’ ‘Remarks – Journaling Gate’) and rub-on sentiment.

And of course the Caribbean Divine Twine, and ship’s wheel charm both from
The Ribbon Girl.

Finger’s crossed I might even get another card or two squeezed in today – it’s still early!
Have a good rest of your weekend, Rx
