Nautical and Nice!

This is one of those cards that took entirely too long to make.  It started out as as a hideous "ugly duckling" and after many attempts morphed into somewhat of a "swan."  Sounds like I've been working too long on it - doesn't it?  LOL

All of that said, I am happy with the final result.  It can be difficult to come up with an interesting masculine card.  I hope this card will inspire you when you need to make a card for that special guy in your life!

  1. I don't really know why but I've always liked the images of old sailing ships. I guess they seem romantic. I know what you mean about ugly ducklings to swans. Sometimes some of my projects feel the same way. And this card really turned into a swan!
