Dueling Darlings Open Sea Card

It is the 15th of the month and that means another Dueling Darlings challenge.  Our hostess this month for the Divas is Jamie and she sent us a wonderful kit.  The theme that April, the hostess for the Dazzlers and Jamie came up with is to create a masculine card since Father’s Day is this weekend.

Jamie also asked us to give a shout-out to the special guy in our life.  That would be my brother, who is 18 years older.  He is definitely a father figure in my life and his two sons are like brothers to me—Love Ya Tony!

Image/Sentiment—Stampin’ Up Open Sea/My Sentiments Exactly

Ink—SU Night of Navy

Paper—SU Night of Navy, Bordering Blue and White; Bo Bunny patterned paper

Accessories—SU Denim Ribbon; Quickutz Diamonds and Dots Embossing Folder;  Blue Button with Navy Bakers Twine; Nesties Deckled Rectangles; Silver Brads  

Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month.  All of the blogs are on the left sidebar of my blog.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the creations for the guys in our lives.

I hope you enjoy looking at our creations!  Thanks for joining us!!!!!!

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
trimmie scraft challenge

I love the way you used this kit! So nice that you sent a shout out to your bro!! Mine is 16 yo than I, so he also played a rather large role in my life since my Dad passed when I was just 14.

So glad we get to Duel it out every 15th!!

Fabulous card, Barb! Love all the textures and layers. Great textured background layer. Love all the deckle edged image layers. Embellishments of button, ribbon and brads are the perfect enhancements! So glad you have such a great brother in your life!!

A perfect manly card. The papers look great together and I love how you texturized the background. Very handsome!

Darlene said...

Barb, this is just stunning!! I love the Nestie set you chose, they're perfect for a masculine, nautical theme! And the embossing adds such a rich element behind everything. This is a show stopper for sure. I hope that you give it to Tony, because it is truly a great card and he sounds like a wonderful man.
PS: LOVE the new blog template!!
