Quality Shipbuilders

I have a very quick card to share today that I have made for my Brother-in-Law's Birthday.  He is difficult to make for as he doesn't really have any hobbies.

I've used a topper and card stock from the Hunkydory Birthdays For Him collection, I can't believe I have actually used some of a collection whilst it is still available - I don't usually get around to using them until they are at least a couple of years old!

I trimmed the border from one of the matching sheets of card stock and added it to the top and bottom of another piece of co-ordinating card stock.  A layer of silver Mirri as a base and a sentiment from my stash and that's about it.


As usual I have decorated the inside of the card as well.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Everybody-Art-Challenge 323 - Happy Birthday
Dream Factory Challenge 19 - Titanic
The Crafting Cafe May Challenge - Around The World
Quirky Crafts Challenge 9 - Let's Go On a Quirky Journey
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 58 - Always Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door Challenge - Always Anything Goes

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.

I love nautical designs and especially this time of year and towards summer. These hobbyless men sure are tricky ones, especially if the don't like beer either, but nautical scenes work for everybody! The shiny of the frame and borders are great touches.
