Tea Dye Vintage Frigate

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my latest card from my challenge to myself to use my existing stash, I have to admit I am really enjoying the challenge to craft outside of my comfort zone!
For this project I used a Woodware stamp which I stamped with Brown Memento. I then cut round this with a nestie, and used a blending tool to colour the image with Tim Holtz distress ink in Tea Dye.
I used Bo Bunny Timepiece papers, teamed with a complimenting vellum greeting sticker saying 'Great Day' in the top right hand corner.
I cut a different square nestie shape in a shimmery brown cardstock to place at an angle behind my image, then added glittery gold ribbon for a different texture and lastly added three wooden buttons as my embellishments in the bottom left hand corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons: Vintage
Little Miss Muffet Challenge: Writing
MilkCoffee Challenge: At least two different shapes
Freshly Brewed Challenges: Distressing
My Mums Craft Shop: Buttons
Cards Und More: Maritime
