Shaker Ship ~ CTD332, RS156, & JUGS283

Happy Sunday everyone!  Today's card combines three challenges....Color Throwdown 332, Retro Sketches 156, and Just Us Girls 283.

This was one of those cards that came together with little effort.  It looks exactly like it did in my head.  When I saw the combo at Color Throwdown, I knew I could use the Maritime DSP, which is perfect!  That would mean a nautical theme of some sort, so I chose the ship from the {Traveler} set.  Then, when I saw the sketch at Retro Sketches, I thought it would be perfect for a shaker.  Bing, bang, boom....done!  The theme at JUGS is masculine and I'd say this fits.  I chose a celebration theme because when a shaker is involved it screams fun!  

I tried to make the circle look like a gold porthole by using brushed gold cardstock and placing punched gold circles for the rivets.  I also "sprinkled" some Champage Shimmer stars in amongst the the captains wheels and anchors to tie things together.  

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Traveler, And Many More
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento; Navy & Red Blendabilities
Paper: Night of Navy, Maritime Dsp, Bushed Gold, Real Red, White
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Confetti Stars punch, Circle thinlits, Small hand-held punch, Modern Label punch, foam tape

Thanks for taking a peek!
