SFTW #9 - Blue, buttons and bling

Today is my first project as a new DT member for Stampin for the Weekend! I am so pleased to be joining this talented bunch of ladies and hope I can match up to their high standards of creating!!

The theme for this fortnights challenge is a Recipe of Blue, Buttons and Bing!  I'm really trying to make more men and boys cards as my stock is seriously deficient in that area. I'm trying to aim for at least 1 in 3...wish me luck!
For my project, I've used a cute LOTV die cut quare and papers from the FF men's collection which matched up really well with the image! The border punch is by X cut, and the sentiment is a Stamp by Personal Impressions. The Buttons and string are from stash, and I've put Distress Stickles around the image for the Bling part!

Thanks for visiting :)

I love the way you have stuck the image at an angle, the boat does look as though its making him topple over, great!

I know what you mean about measuring up against the talent at SFTW I feel the same !

You need not worry tho this is super sweet I love LOTV and haven't as yet purchased any - I'll put them on my wish list as I'm on a strict spending ban at the mo !
