Patchwork Boat

Hi Crafters,
Hope you are all well. I'm wishing for summer to return to us, the last few days have been like winter :(   We've had rain, high winds and it's been quite chilly.
On to my card for today though and as promised it's the second of the two cards that I made for my Great Nephew.....

One year old - where has that year gone?
For this card I paper pieced the sail boat using some of the many snippets of patterned paper from my ever-growing paper mountain, lol. The stamp is from Woodware and aptly named 'Patchwork Boat', so cute for a young baby card don't you think? I then layered the boat on to a circle and scalloped circle die cut, used some more patterned papers from The Mountain and cut a number '1' from my very useful MFT Die-namics 'By The Numbers' die, added a few pearls, ribbon and some faux stitching.

I'm entering these challenges:
Scribble & Scrap - #22 Anything Goes
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Sister Act - #65 Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - #43 Anything Goes
Tomorrow I will be here with my creation for our friendly Christmas Card Club, we make a Christmas card every fortnight to lighten the load on us in the run up to December. Hope you can join me then.
Bye for now,
