This took me some time ... a lot of time. I hand made each of the flags which I research the patterns online, added them to jute twine, then tied a knot and glued that to the ends of the rope. Added a printed off background, and sentiment, also added digital clip art of the life preserver and a glass of ice tea. I added silver brads as well, and colored the rope brown. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=338213

That is so awesome that you took the time to make sure the flags were all correct! Then to make and color them all just right too! They look fantastic, especially with the twine you used!!! You have the perfect sentiment too! Excellent card for this week's theme!!!
