One for the Boys........

What a cute little card for a little boy.....my children have an invite to a party in just over a weeks time so i thought i would make this card for the birthday boy.....



I have followed a sketch for the design of this card. Here i have used Forever Friends Retro Collection 'The Good Life' as BG papers and the image is a die cut from the same collection. The sentiment is from my stash and the gorgeous ships wheel i bought from i think The Ribbon Girl last year, has been sitting in my stash and seems appropriate for this creation.....i have tied this on with twine which i re-supplied myself with this week. I also think of the song 'In the Navy' by the Village People when i see this image! lol


I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
1. Forever Friends - Use a Charm
2. Sketch N Stash - Sketch
3. Glitter Geeks - Song Title
4. Card Cupids - Birthday Cards For Boys
