Nautical Anchor Under The Sea

Good morning to all my lovely crafty friends its Wednesday and you've got it its another challenge over at Crafting By Designs and the theme this week is reuse/recycle.

We have one sponsor this week

Prize:  3 single images

For my card I decided on a stamp called Nautical Anchor Under The Sea I really enjoyed colouring this stamp and my recycle was the string around the image and reused was my circle dies, hessian and  twine.

  3. Carole, this is such a wonderful take on a nautical themed card. I love the design, your embellishments are beautiful, and the image is darling. The abundance of natural trims is wonderful and the way you encircled the image twice is stunning. Wonderfully done, my friend!

  5. Just a perfect nautical card Carole! The porthole is a great way to show off the fabby image. Those embellishments are wonderful, Carole. Even though Whitby isn't far from me I don't go there much as the pavements are too narrow in places for my power chair and the cobbles, well, make me need the nearby facilities, lol. I hope your week is going well. Debra x
