Sailor Bear

This is my second DT card for the Forever Friends Monthly Challenge, this month the theme is Animals, Birds or Butterflies, we would like to see at least one of these on your cards.

I have made two cards this month, one using an image from Saturated Canary who are sponsoring our Forever Friends Favourite winner this month (see post below) and this one using an image and papers from the Forever Friends - The Good Life Collection.

The card stock is from Joanna Sheen, but unfortunately she doesn't stock it anymore.  I cut the anchor embellishment with a Spellbinders die and coated it with 3D Crystal Lacquer, I also added lots of brads around the porthole.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card using the same papers and layout as the front:

Card Recipe:

Image and papers:  Forever Friends - The Good Life Collection
Card Stock:  Joanna Sheen - discontinued
Tools:  Spellbinders - Circle, Scalloped Circle and Anchor, Die-namics - Photo Corners
Embellishments:  ribbon, string, brads from stash

Hmm..... You make so many lovely cards, but I think this might be my favorite of 2013 so far. I have a weak spot for the nautical theme as well as for the male theme, you've chosen such a great layout, and I love the detail of the metal! Ans I love the image - perfect for both children and adults. I love this one, Pauline!
