Johnny Depp!

Had to make a card for my son's girlfriend who is a huge Johnny Depp fan (much to the annoyance of my son). I tied the card in with the challenge over on ChristmasandBirthdaycards and followed their sketch. I used denim papers from NRN Designs, punched a border and threaded with fibres, added a charm, flower and a happy birthday embellishment. Added a bit of false stitching and ripped the papers to show the lovely white edge.

Have to agree with your sons girlfriend isn't he gorgeous, and the card to of course, the boat really ties in well with the colour of the card. I did make the paper beads, first time I tried it, got new stamps today Pickles & onion the elephants from D & Dandelion, they look really cute maybe get a chance later to make a card, up to my eyeballs in boxes, should have sent this as an email.
