Hoist the colours high...



I have a great image to share with you today from the Prairie Fairy Nautical line. This is perfect for a more masculine themed card. Very very easy to colour. I paired it with CTMH papers, added some ribbon and a button as well as crystal effects to the water and voila a fairly quick card. I am entering it at the following challenges.... Digital Tuesday - sports theme, Cards For Men transport, Craftalicious - thanks, Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - thank you projects, simon says - move it, Digi Doodle Shop's Best - use a charm.
