Big birthday wishes from Sailor Boy..............

So sorry my DT red/white/blue card is so late for the Ribbon Girl colour challenge No 7  but better late than never, so here is my offering with the new HAnglar sailor boy stamp which I have coloured with copics.  I followed the sketch from this weeks Just Magnolia and HAnglar & Stanglar challenge and will enter my card in their challenge

He is rather large to fit into a circle, so I had to cut him out and have put him on top of a circle cut from a map.  I was itching to add some flowers, but as it is a man card I thought it better to add a nice red heart pin which I made into a flag by stamping the sentiment, inking the edges and curling it a bit then glued it to the pin.

For a boy-type ribbon I used white saddlestitch ribbon with black stitching and added a bronze boat charm fixed to hang from a small red polka dot button tied to the ribbon with ivory button twine.

All of the papers I used were matted onto white before assembling my card. (sorry, other than October Afternoon and My Minds Eye I'm not sure which other books I took the papers from)  The white background for my map circle was made with a nestability die.  The saddlestitch, pin, charm, button twine and the polka dot button are all from http://www.ribbongirl.co.uk/

ps did you know we have put some items in our 'SALE' section at the ribbon girl shop - if you need coloured stickles, wide ric rac, centre spot grosgrain, striped buttons, reversible spot ribbon and mini glossy accents - pop over now so you won't be disappointed!
