nautical card #2 - Kianel

Hello,
Kianel with you today to present you a card i made for the last TOMIC challenge which theme is "nautical".
And here the card i made using the marvellous CLD dies. To make the base of my card i used the great "square XL stackers" and worked with layers.
And how about some CLD dies that can be used for a nautical decoration? For that purpose, i used the "dimensional buttons 5" for this little one that resemble a boat steering wheel. Then i used the "garden gate" die for which i cut out the sides and turned it 90°C so that i could obtain a ladder that i decorated with some rope bows.
I added the gorgeous "tropical flourish" die that i cut in several pieces to make it fit my clustering. Under the image and the nest, you can see a piece of the " english tea party doily" die (use the cuttlehug to get a clean and easy cut). Some small shells also decorate the clustering.
I also used the "little scalloped circle stackers" and "little circle stackers" in layers for my sentiment.
Some small shells also put here to build a flower and a wooden pearl makes the center.
To place my image on, i used the "cardmaker's stackers" and used the largest one to cut out a piece of old book. And a close up to see the shimmery colouring:
