CAS Manly Nautical Birthday Banner Card

Hello Crafteteers!

A friend of ours is celebrating his birthday this weekend and he loves sailing so I thought I would use the JustRite CAS challenge sketch in a nautical theme for his card.  

The card base is navy blue card stock.  MME "Moments" mini paper pad provided the background paper and the large banner paper.  I distressed the edges of the base white paper and the MME paper.  I applied faux red stitches along the inside edges.  JustRite banner die (SW-04415) was used on white paper and I used all those bits of scrap I saved from other precious MME paper to add color and pattern to the inside of each banner (yay scraps!).  The Happy Birthday sentiment (JR set Anchors Away, CR-03710) was heat embossed in white on the large blue banner.  The red corrugated paper (from an unknown supplier) was used to add some texture and height.  Sprightly Sprockets (Spellbinders S5-048) was used on the yellow patterned Moments piece of paper and applied to the banner.  The round anchor detail was from the Anchors Away stamp set.  Bling gems were applied at will.  :)

So there you go!  The CAS Manly Nautical Birthday Banner Card.  Hope you liked it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Thank you for your much appreciated comments!
