Birthday, the Sail Way

 A quick post today...a simply done birthday card for a guy who LOVES sailing!!...
I don't know about you, but I struggle with "guy" birthday cards.  I try to think of the guy I'm making the birthday card for.  I decided a birthday card celebrating his love for sailing would be perfect.  Then...what to do with the sailboat.  I had gotten the Birch Press Big Birthday die a while back and inspiration struck.  I originally thought of making waves, but opted to use the birthday die as the water. I used 4 shades of blue textured cardstock and adhered, then die cut from the adhered strips.  I die cut the sailboat and adhered it to die cut foam, then adhered both the sentiment and boat to a piece of embossed cardstock.  I tried all different ways to put "wishes" on the card...wound up stamping with versamark and white embossing...the white sentiment kind of balanced the boat.  Here's a close up...
Such fun...as alway!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
