Another knot

Hi there!

I think I've seen some of the most beautiful cards in blog land HERE , at Mojo Monday!

So... in a way I feel a bit intimidated to link my creation here, in line with all this talent, but... the sketches are IRRESISTIBLE!

Here's my take on the sketch!







I love this paper I downloaded (freebie) from eyeinspire. It reminded me of the sea...sea cottage ... interior and that's  why I chose the image of a seagull.
I printed it on vellum and stitched it to the backing paper with black thread.

The sentiment in Afrikaans reads : Birthday wishes for you.

I used the same knot as in this card. Here's how! I thought it fits in well with the sea theme.
