Another 'guy' birthday card. The stamp I used on this card is one of the first stamps I bought years ago. I love anything to do with the ocean and I thought this stamp would work nice with the seascapes stamps I already had. It is still a favorite 'go to' stamp for me. I colored this image with colored pencils. The circle sentiment had flowers in the center so I just cut them out. I thought it made the sentiment look like a life saver tube. (Is that the correct name for them?) a little hemp and some copper eyelets and my card was finished.
I hope your month is shaping up to a wonderful start to 2014.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: My Anchor Holds
- Though the angry surges rollOn my tempest-driven soul,I am peaceful, for I know,Wildly though the winds may blow,I’ve an anchor safe and sure,That can evermore endure.

- And it holds, my anchor holds:
