Friday Fun Challenge #65

For this week's challenge Sara writes: "My parents' 43rd Anniversary was yesterday (no you don't have to use 43 embellies like with Kimme's challenge).  According to, well I'm not sure but each year it corresponds to a gift.  For example the 1st year is paper, 2nd year cotton and so on.  Well they didn't really have one in the past for 43 but I found one that did and apparently it's travel.  I want you to make a travel themed anniversary card.  Not too hard, right?"

I was really going to try to make a card with 43 embellishments, I've been teasing Sara for a couple weeks about it, but this card didn't seem to warrant it.  It has more of a masculine nautical feel to it and I just didn't think that rhinestones fit with it.  

I wish I knew how to tie some really cool nautical knots, I would have added them as embellishments, but the best I could do is square knots.  The charm says "Congrats," as I figure this card could be used as a retirement card or a masculine Birthday card and the sentiment fit either way.

Ink:  Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Momento-Rich Cocoa, Copic Markers
