Retirement card

Evening all


My neighbour's nephew asked for a retirement card with a boat on it, for someone who works on a boat, so this is what I made. I paper-pieced the sail to match the background papers.

Ingredients
Image - LOTV Sailing Boat
Papers - Papermania
Sentiment - LOTV For You Circular Sentiments
Ship's wheel charm, red button twine, cotton tape and saddlestitch ribbon - Ribbon Girl
Jute twine - Live and Love Crafts
Coloured with PMs and Copics
Gold Liquid Pearls, Gold embossing powder, Stickles, Glossy Accents

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Something New (Gold Liquid Pearls and the papers are new)

Thanks for looking :)
