Ahoy Mates! It's One For The Boys at TPC!

Isn't this the cutest little boat you ever saw.  It is called Sail Away and you can get it here at MelJen's.  She is our sponsor this week and I LUV her designs.  They have that cute whimsical personality and I do love cute whimsical.  You can get a chance to go shopping in her store if you are this week's lucky Totally PaperCrafts winner.  Remember you can't win if you don't play.

I had so much fun coloring this little guy.  Of course I used my Copics, but I used a Sakura Jelly Roll pen in Clear to acccent it.  I used a SU Top Note Die to cut it out and it is accented by a flag string I made by cutting out trianges and attaching them to baker's twine.  2 silver brads attach the banner.  The letters are stickers.  I used a EK Success Scalloped Border to punch out some waves with the green paper.  Tied a piece of green tulle around the waves and used a little 3D  life preserver sticker to accent the bow.  DP is a gift an Inky Digit Pal and the red and yellow cardstock are from SU.

I chose not to add a specific sentiment to allow me to use the card for different occasions.  It could be used for a toddler's bithday, new baby, friendship,  encouragement card.  I''ll finish it off with a sentiment inside the card when I decide who I am giving it to.

Hop on over to the TPC Challenge Blog and see all the other male cards my DT has created for you inspiration.  Hope to see you there Dahlings!!  Big Hugs.
