  1. What a wonderful, masculine card this is! The twine is the perfect bit of texture for this image. Great design too. I love everything about it! Thanks so much for linking up to the DRU "Anything Goes" challenge. Best of luck to you.

  2. A super image and background, like the little starfish. Thank you for joining our 'Old, New, Borrowed, Blue, challenge at Allsorts.

  3. This is really FABULOUS!!! I love everything about it, and especially the twine. Really brings it to the next level. What a wonderful masculine card, love the design. I might have to PIN!!!!

  4. The background is so interesting, but that image of the pelican is so regal and a fantastic masculine card. The twine was a genius addition. I bet this was for Tom.

  5. Always love your nautical cards. the rope is a perfect touch

  6. Beautiful card. I love the colors, image and fiber detail on it.

  7. What a beautifully designed, peaceful, lovely work of art, Donna! The rope twine, layers of papers, and blue starfish all make this such a wonderful design! hugs, de

  11. Oh wow, how cool is that, I love your extra touches with the Jute and the great coloring, like your map for the background too!

  12. Donna, what a wonderful card. This would be a great masculine but works for anyone! Love the texture. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I had to answer your question. I am a Donna Jean. And in high school they sat us in alphabetical order. there were 2 Donna Jeans and all of us had last names that began with R. So if they called us to the office we all showed up because we couldn't understand which last name they said. Thanks again!

    1. hahaha funny story. I also had 2 friends in school named Donna, but they were both Maries. :)
