This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge which has just started this week...you can find it here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/
I love this challenge and will be playing each week....check it out, they have an amzing BLOG Candy for the opening challenge.
I have used a retired set that I was generously given by my SU and Friend Ann....the only payment she required was a card made with it...so here is it. Actaully I have made two the same as it is my brother's birthday in July and he has a yacht, infact lives on it with his dog, Dennis, who is amazingly similar to Scooby Doo...they are a funny pair together - add living on a yacht into that equation and the stress and laughs never stop. My brother will love this card!
I chalked the image and sponged around the edges, layering it onto embossed CS. The corners are torn embossed CS, I set eyelets and tied some twine/jute through them and lastly added an embossed sentiment....see how good I am, I even added some 'sea spray' around the sentiment....okay...that is from the embossing powder...I even used an embossing powder, I am not sure why it went like that....if you know..please PM me...but for the purpose of this card we will call it 'sea spray' as it is also for the Limited Supply Challenge which is all about seaside...so my 'srtistic licence' is fully in play!! LOL!!
