Nautical Father's Day Wishes

Good Mojo Monday to you! Hope you're ready to play along with another fabulous sketch designed by Julee!  I went with some bold papers from the Kate and Co. line from My Mind's Eye called "Oxford Lane" - perfect for Verve's new nautical set, "Strong Anchor".
I tied a sailor's knot with Blue Hawk Twisted Mason Line found at Lowes (Walmart was out of the cotton worsted thread that I normally use).  You can find the tutorial by Bar Anders in the Tips/Tutorial tab at the top of my blog.  I layered the cording over a strip of navy blue satin ribbon.  The rest of the card is pretty simple and straight forward.

Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Strong Anchor (Verve)
PAPER: Oxford Lane 6x6 pad by MME, White by PTI.
INK: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight.
ACCESSORIES:  Circle punches, Circle Nesties, Cording, Satin ribbon.
