Hold the Helm

Taking some time to play along with the Addicted to CAS challenge: Wheels.

When I looked through my digital stamp index I realized I don’t have much in the way of wheels. Lots of folks did a bicycle, so I wanted to do something different. When I spied the ship’s wheel I went with it! Here is my card:

Hold the Helm | by karen @ carefree creations

The wheel moves! I popped up the white layer with a layer of foam, cut a hole in the foam so that the brad could spin.

Since I put it all on a Navy card base, I decided to decorate the inside too:

I don’t normally do the inside (I’m usually wiped out mojo/mentally once the front is done, lol). For this I just simply switched the elements around – the striped paper is on the right and the image is bottom left.

I’m so happy with how this card turned out!

Thanks for taking a peek!
