Ooh La La Challenge #158 - Father's Day/ masculine card

The challenge this week at Ooh La La is to make a Father's Day/masculine card.  Dad died four years ago now, he was a Master Mariner, his leisure time when he retired was spent on a small yacht and the sea was in his blood.  Dad, this one's for you xxx.  Image and DP from the "From Boys to Men" CD by Ooh La La, anchor and word cut with Portrait, a bit of nautical looking cord (I hope!) added.
I'm also entering my card for:
Simon Says - Father's Day/masculine
CD Sunday - at the sea (a second entry)
That Craft Place - men
Ladybug Crafts - something for the boys
Always something creative - men
Polkadoodles - men on our mind
QKR Stampede - Father's Day

  8. Anne this is lovely, sounds like the perfect card for your Dad. Don't know why the same image is so much lighter on your card to mine - perhaps just different printers, but I think I prefer it in your lighter shades, Jx
