Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz Sketch Challenge, and today I am more than grateful for this sketch, as it was just perfect with a slight alteration for the card I wanted to make for our Godson.

He and his parents are going on a cruise for his 50th birthday, so I wanted to make something that was relevant and I think this is. I slipped up on the placement of the port hole, it should have been slightly higher, but I think the male of the species won't notice? I hope LOL. I also added acetate to the centre of it and added gold glitter pen to the "screws".

image - Kenny Kay
coloured in PS, cut with border
background and insert paper - Lettering Delights
port hole is 3D'd, anchor & chain - SVG cuts
anchor paper - melo vrijhof Pixelscrapper
cheers and 50 - Tingler script font
All cut with Silhouette Cameo
right sentiment - Create with TLC
the bottle is cut from the image and made larger for the left side., 
with a verse I saw on the web years ago.
All made to fit an C5 card.


this is the sketch I followed
