Some Odd Girl - Octopus Birthday Card for Dad!

HEY HEY!
I've been crafting again, and just haven't gotten around to photographing/blogging/uploading them yet... I have a card going into my stores (Madeit, and Etsy) tonight, so keep an eye out!
Anyway, on to the card for my dad
I started with the Octopus stamp, which came in my last Some Odd Girl Order, (he jumped into my cart, before I had a chance to say "Stop, don't, come back"), I coloured him up with my Spectrum Noir Markers, and then set him aside, I grabbed some patterned papers (from American Crafts), and doodled around the outside. I added a strip of ribbon and a sentiment. The anchor is from the stamp set, I've embossed it in silver.
