Let's Go Nautical! - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

It seems so strange missing my weekly blog post - I didn't realise how regular I'd become with my blogging.  I have been having some well deserved family time as my brother and family were visiting from America.  We've had so much fun and made a lot of memories but I miss them a great deal.

Being as we shared some fun times by the sea I decided to opt for a nautical theme for the Daring Cardmakers challenge this week.  The Design Team have made a wonderful variety of creations which you can see HERE.


For my card, I decided to use up parts of a pack from a cardmaking magazine I got a long time ago.  It's something I kept thinking I'd use it but never got round to it.  I do love a good sentiment and this one was perfect for the recipient.  I based my card around it, building it up as I went along with various die cut elements.

I hope you'll join in with the Challenge and see you again soon!
