Happy Birthday - Creating Pretty Cards 7

I have another card using the sketch from Craft Project Central.    My brother's birthday is in a couple of weeks and I need a card.

I stamped the ship on whisper white cardstock then centered it on the square Designer Frame, embossed it and  cut the center out.  I embossed another frame, cut around it and centered this on my card front.  The ship is on foam dots. Instead of using circles I used the Decorative Label punch to the ledger paper that I stamped with Basic Gray.

I used the light blue DSP after cutting off the trees and Clouds for the inside of my card.  I used the clouds as a border on the top of the card.  The anchor is stamped with basic gray and punched out using the Designer Label Punch.

To make my ribbon match my card I used Very Vanilla Seam Binding and colored it with my Bermuda Bay ink pad, then used a heat gun to dry it.

Thanks for stopping by.
