Uniko August Challenge


It is time for our monthly challenge at Uniko and it is a fun one to use a song title to inspire your design.  I used it as an excuse to make a birthday card for my Dad whose birthday is at the end of the month.  The song title that my card reflects is Sailing.....

I used the fabulous Nautical Treasures stamp set and paper pieced the sails.  Blue card behind the circle aperture creates dimension and a sea like background.

It is a simple design but hopefully a good one for a masculine design.

What song titles will inspire your card?  It is great to use prompts and ideas like this to kickstart your mojo :)

Do check out what the rest of the DT have created over at Uniko - they have some great ideas to share.  The challenge is open until 9 September so there is plenty of time to play along!

Thanks for stopping by,
