I'm a sailor...

That was a real challenge... Nautical & male cards together + a little bit of my favourite vinage. I just wanted my card to be perfect... Maybe it's not, but I'm really content of it.
The ship has been cut out of some presents wrapping paper - sometimes they are a really interesting material for crafts. You just gotta look closer ;)
Anyway I also stamped the ship's elements using FISKARS stamps and  cut out some definitions from an English dictionary edited in 1916 (OK, now I can imagine the book worms faint). I bought it at Polish version of e-bay (www.allegro.pl). And it costed me peanuts!
The buttons I found in my stash - I have no idea where they are from. My friend inspired me to stamp some material and... voila! Suits just perfect for me!
Can you feel the sea breeze and the smell of rum? 
On board everyone!!!
