This is my card for the following challenges:
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 91. The theme was a Birthday card. And, Creative Inspirations blog challenge. The theme was 'anything goes'.

The stamp set I used for the card was Seascape from Little Claire. I begun by stamping the elements of the main image using a Memento ink pad onto one piece of smooth white card. I coloured in the image with ProMarkers. I then cut the image into three panels and mounted them on a piece of red card.

I cut a piece for dark blue card for the background. I rounded the bottom corners with a corner rounder. I added the image panels and then a strip of red ribbon before adding it to a scalloped card blank. I stamped and coloured the anchor and lifebelt images and added them to the card.

I stamped the greeting and mounted it onto panels if red and blue card. I tied a bow with the red ribbon and attached this to the card. To finish I added nailhead stickers and faux stitching.
