Nautical Birthday


Betty has some fabulous colors for the SCS Color Challenge this week: Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy & Crumb Cake with the dessert option to use something from the kitchen - a piece of burlap in this case. I'm also entering this into the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to use twine or string. I used both baker's twine and some jute twine. I love this new SU set from the summer mini - perfect for masculine cards. I'm needing quite a few masculine birthday cards, so this will fit the bill for them. Lots of distressing and sponging with tea dye distress ink...a crimped frame and a collage tag (cut with a Verve die), and a sailor's knot finish this off. The cherry cobbler base panel was dry embossed using a diamond EF.
STAMPS: The Open Sea (SU), Sentiment Flags (Lil' Inker Design)
PAPER: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Vintage Cream
INK: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Tea dye distress ink (Tim Holtz)
ACCESSORIES: Burlap, Sponge, Distressing tool, Tag die by Verve, Diamond EF, Baker's twine, jute twine, shell charm.
