This month is 'Add A Bow'. I bought some airmail style ribbon in my local craft shop and then built the card around it.
The backing paper is actually wallpaper, a small sample from a well known DIY shop, it's a collage of old maps which helped with my vintage theme.
Next came a free digi from Free Vintage Digital Stamps, printed on blue paper. The ship is then surrounded by airmail washi tape from Papermania. I cut it in half so as not to waste any hidden under the picture.
The bow is pleated rather than tied as I thought it looked a little more masculine that way. It is stitched together with a small gold anchor sewn in the middle that used to be part of a button.
Please come and play along at HOC, now we have a whole month in which you can create and link up.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
