City Crafter - Nautical

Good morning!

I'm hosting the challenge this week at City Crafter and I've chosen this lovely photo to inspire you



I just love the nautical look so this week I am asking that you 
Create a card or project with a nautical theme ...

A male friend of ours is due to retire this week so my card is for him


I used a stamp from the New Day set by Precious Remembrance along with distress inks to create the background ... 2 other stamps sets were used here as well and a little paper piecing on the sails


The beads I've had forever and that broken piece of fence and I never discard any little pieces of string


Our Guest Designer this week is Jenny Martin of My Paper Epiphany Jenny was our winner in week 206 ... hop over and say hello!

My fellow DT members have more inspiration for you up on the blog ... And the winner will have a GD spot with us too so get nautical and come join us this week

Wishing you all a wonderful day

~ Ros ~
