Happy Birthday to You

I've been asked to make some more male cards, which is always a challenge for me!  This card is made with card and paper from my snippets box.

I covered the front of the card blank with blue paper leaving a border around the edge.  I die cut the waves from both blue textured card and white matt card, layering the blue onto the white to create the white tops of the waves. I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment onto the wave, stamping it several times to get a good depth of colour as I was stamping onto textured card.  These strips were trimmed and attached to the card - the top layer was only attached along the bottom so I could slip the boat between the waves.  I stamped and embossed the boat before using the coordinating die to cut it.  After colouring the boat with Promarkers I attached it to the card with a foam pad behind the sails.  I die cut three clouds,  the largest and smallest were attached to the card with glue and the medium cloud attached with a foam pad.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white matt card blank
     Clearly Besotted 'Sail Away' stamp and die set, Impression Obsession 'Ocean Border' and 'Clouds' dies
     Hobby Art 'General Greetings' stamp
     Versafine Majestic Blue ink
     Snippets of pale blue paper, blue textured card, white matt card and white hammer card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes With Dies - May challenge
