Vintage Sailor Boy - Confirmation Card No 3

It's the season for confirmations, so this is the third confirmation card I've made for a boy.
For this one I chose to use a  vintage image of a sailor boy. I went with blue, white and sand colored papers and embellishments for a nautical feel.
The DPs I've used are from Maja Desgin. To add some feel of texture I embossed a square of paper, I machine stitched around the edges using silver thread, I put cheesecloth behind the image and a bit of jute to make the frame.
The anchor is die cut using a Die-namics die, and I embossed the paper with platinum ultra thick embossing enamel to give it a metallic look.
The embossed square opens up, and on the inside I've made a pocket for a gift card or money and space to write. I added to die cut rounded tags to make the flaps for the square and decorated them with candy. The sentiment I chose to put between the flaps, it's a confirmation greeting and it's been heat embossed with blue embossing powder.

Outstanding Pia! The concept of this being overalls with an interactive flap is terrific. The masculine textures of jute and cheesecloth is wonderful and there is a complete nautical feel to this. Having the card open for a monetary gift is perfect. I just love your confirmation card! :)
