Something for the men this time

Hello to everyone,

We are almost halfway through the year and in June we always think of the men..... in many countries Father's day is celebrated in June.... so the theme at   Let's Craft and Create  this month is You're the man.

There are lovely cards made by the DT for inspiration and a prize as well, so do please come and play at our challenge this month.

I decided on a birthday card using paper from my stash which is very slowly diminishing......  I have decided this year not to buy any new patterned paper as I have so much

The paper is from a very old pack of Forever Friends..The good life.  Matted onto burgundy cardstock

Cut a tag from the same cardstock and attached it with a button and some cord....keeping the sailing theme.

The sentiment is also from an old packet of diecut greeting tags.

Finished off with brass brads in the corners.

I will enter it in a few challenges.
