Ahoy There!

Hi Everyone

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Unicorn Challenge 

The theme for this month is Use Some Ribbon.  I hope that you can come on over and play along with us this month.

For my DT card I made a Birthday Card for our Son who will be 6 at the end of April.  I used a Digi image from Paper Nest Dolls called Captain Owen and I have coloured him using Copics, Diamond Sparkles Glitter, Prismacolour White Pencil and Memento Dew Drop Inks.  This is the first time I have bought and coloured an image from this company.  I did buy another one at the same time so will be back to share that one at some point!

The card is a 7" Square and I tried to create a little scene with my background papers.  The sea paper is from Hunkydory and the plain blue is from LOTV.  I added a Blue Satin Ribbon to make a border between the two.   I used a Robert Addams Anchor die and tied blue glittery thread to it and stuck it to the boat.  The "6 Today" are also Robert Addams Dies and the sentiment I typed before printing the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges

 Thank you for visiting my blog today and sharing this card with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.
