Mojo Monday 100!!

I made a card for the Mojo Monday Week 100 Monday challenge. I wasn't very happy with it at first but it is growing on me. I think once I had added the photo corners it looked heaps better.
I love these old fashioned photo corners, the real thing. So that is why they aren't all exactly even, not like a punchie.

The paper is Graphic 45, very yummy and cardstock is from the Core'dinations Nostalgia range.
I used a SU set that is in the Spring Mini catalogue which hadn't seen ink, called Uncharted Territory and the little greeting is from Hero Arts. I used Tim Holtz distress inks to colour the boat and a very fine paintbrush with a little water. Greeting and boat have been stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The scallop is an Octagon scallop nestie. Oh and the punches are Stampin' Up.
Thanks for looking.
