Peachy Keen Challenge #61

Hya everyone!
Firstly an apology. I was away all last week in Wales on holiday, 
so I didn't manage to comment on anyone's submissions for the last PK Challenge.
I will do better now I'm back. (We have a set of numbers each for commenting, 
so if I don't get to comment on your project, it doesn't mean I'm ignoring you).

OK! On to Challenge # 61
Our amazing Guest Designer this week is the fabulous Jane -AKA The Polka Dot Gypsy!!
You really MUST see her fabulous projects.

Create a card with the sketch provided & twist incorporated. 
Peachy Keen Stamps are not required to participate, but we always love to see what you create with them if you have them already!

TWIST: Use twine or embroidery floss on your project

Design must be new
Link up by 3rd October - 11:59 pm CDT (5.59 BST on 4th October)

Here's the Sketch.....
Here's my take on it....
As soon as I saw the sketch, I 'saw' the prow of a ship!
The 'waves' were cut on my Expression using a SCAL file by SVG Attic. using The 'Just Beachy' file.
The lifebuoy is wound with baker's twine.
The Faces are from PK-531, 'Simple Sallies Face Assortment'.
The sun is PK-246 'Large Sun'.
Anchor is a SVG file, but can't remember where from off-hand.
(I'll update as soon as I remember).

Well, I hope you liked my trip outside the norm.
Please make your way to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog!
You are going to be blown away by what my DT sisters have created for you!
I'm SO privileged to be part of this team.

Have a great week and HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
