Birthday Boat

I haven't had much studio time this weekend, so I thought I'd dig through some old card photos and post one you haven't seen yet. This was made several months ago...before Thanksgiving actually!
I needed a masculine BD card and instead of using ribbon, I used that awesome kraft colored button twine to add the feeling of "ropelines" on a sailboat. Fun, huh?

I've taken the day off work tomorrow so I can spend tons of quality time in my studio, creating, drinking tea, and blaring my music as loud as I want! *grin* I'm looking forward to a good time while my hubster is at work and the kids are in school! Ahhh an empty house all to myself...pure bliss.

Thanks for stopping by this evening!

I love this masculine card Dana! The colours are great - bright and fun but still suitable for a guy. But the best part is the seemingly randomly threaded twine - superb finishing detail!

I can totally see the ropes from the twine even before reading about it. What a fun card!
