D-lish Scraps November inspiration board challenge

Have you seen the November inspiration board over at D-lish Scraps? I really enjoyed the board.
I started with the sketch in mind, but in the end my layout only used a couple of elements of the sketch. I was inspired by the colours, the colour scheme leans edged me towards a male layout. The nautical theme inspired me to create a wave type effect on my background. The twine inspired me to use fibres- vintage doily and tape measure ribbon and the metal inspired me to use metal wire.
