Masculine Twist On This Week's Viva la Verve Sketch

VLV May 2014 Wk 2 photo VLVMayWk2pic.jpg

Today's card uses this week's Viva La Verve sketch created by Diva Janelle.  Since I used shamrocks on my Mojo Monday card, and flowers and butterflies have been in abundance here lately, I decided to go with a nautical theme.

Love Verve's Strong Anchor and matching Nautical Die set.  The anchor and wheel images were the perfect size for the circles, and I took the opportunity to turn this into a Father's Day card for my hubby by using this wonderful sentiment from the set.  Added the banners using the Pennant Trim die to complete the nautical theme and a few brads and twine my "masculine embellishments" LOL.

Thanks for popping by and if you want to see which cards I chose to highlight for this week's VLV sketch, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and check it out.

Wishing you a fabulous day!

What a great mix! The patterns and the pennants (with the twine) perfectly set off your nautical theme.
