Red, White and Blue

This week it's Anything Goes over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday, so no twist this week. Our April sponsors are Nicecrane Designs and  Paper Temptress. I've made a card using an image from the Adorable Bessie DSL set. I used DPs with a nautical feel from Maja Designs and Authentique. The clouds have been stamped and fussy cut. The birthday sentiment is heat embossed. I used a red brad and a sailboat metal charm attached to white twine. A bit of cheesecloth and machine stitching with blue thread.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Come and Get It - Where the Boys Are
2) Eclectic Ellapu - For the Boys
3) Deep Ocean Challenge - #76 Stitching
4) Penny's Paper-Crafty - #174 One for the Boys
