Sailing Boat

This card has been made with inspiration from the sketch at "moving along with the times" challenge blog.

The image used is Sailing Boat from Lily of the Valley and has been coloured with Promarkers before matting and layering onto the navy backing paper.  The background effect on the image has been created using Tim Holtz distress ink - tumbled glass, and then adding faux stitching with a Marvy Le Plume pen.

The backing papers are from a scrapbook set that I won in the raffle at a craft retreat I went to in February and this is the first time I have used them.  The ribbon, buttons and embroidery thread are all from my stash.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Moving Along With The Times - sketch
I Love Promarkers - sketch
My Partner in Crafting Crime - layer it up
Paper Sundaes - childhood memories
Card Ideas - kidding around
Little Claires - spring colours
Fussy and Fancy - card for a child
