True Blue Friend

     Time for another challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.  Since it's the first Thursday of the month that means it's "Anything Goes" time.  I had one more of the little sailor boys I hadn't used yet and after all the sailors that were in last week challenge I had to break he and his furry friend out.  You can find the whole set of Sailor Boys in Mo's store.
     Here's what the tag looks like.  I used a Nestie to cut the top shape and then added faux stitching.
     I picked up a couple of 12 x 12 sheets at Hobby Lobby when I got all my paper pad deals cause I loved the stars and stripes to pair with this image.  I masked and inked the sky with Distress ink and used some Prisma pencils on his clothes and Scruffie's neck tie.  You gotta have rope with a sailor and I added a little accordion flower with stacked buttons.  Everytime I look at it I think of the paddle wheel boats on the Mississippi for some reason.  Guess cause they always had the buntings strung along their sides that kind of look like my flower.  Silly I know.  :-)
     Okay, like I said, this is Anything Goes week so you can break out any Mo image you have and make a card.  Wow us!  LOL
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:  

Bearly Mine--anything goes
Party Time Tuesdays--anything goes
Twisted Tuesday--free for all
Love To Create--add a tag
Make It Monday--anything goes

     Have a fabulous Thursday!

Hi! I like how you didn't anchor down the tag so it can be pulled out! When I was thinking of using this sketch, it didn't occur to me to leave free to move. Love your sky, still have to try that! And of course you coloring of this sweet boy and his dog is great!

Eh, it's okay. Bwhahahahahaha...kidding!! OMG...it's amazing and you inked the ridges on the rosette (brilliant) and the drawn stitching on the tag (fantastic) and the clouds (uber cool!). Glorious, glorious card H. :)
