One Stitch at a Time Challenge - 8 April 2012

Over at the One Stitch at a Time Challenge Blog the topic this week is "use a digi".  For my card I have used the image "In the Harbour" by Teri Sherman.  I decided to make a card for Father's Day for the stall.  I have coloured the image in with 9-10 shades of brown as I thought I'd do a monotone card.  The backing papers are one of Debbi Moore's magazine and I chose one with a nautical rope and seashells.  There were some embellishments in the magazine so I have used a ribbon strip and some of the seashells to accent the card.  I have used a wave tearing ruler around the image and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink Pad.  The card has been finished off with a sentiment from my stash which if my memory serves me right is from an Andy Carolann CD.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Anything Goes - Anything goes
Pile it On - All about "s" - seaside and shells
Scrapbook Sisters - Dad's birthday/men
Bling it On - Monochrome
Make my Monday - Vintage
