Sail a Way

The theme this week at Crafty Cardmakers is to make your project for a special man or boy. I made this card for a very special friend of ours' birthday.  
I used a stencil by Stampendous for the background along with an element and birthday die by Tim Holtz.  The sailing ship is a stamp from my collection that at this moment I can not remember the maker's name.  The element die I used embossed with shabby blue embossing enamel and the sail boat I coloured with distressed ink.

 To complete the card I added a anchor and steering wheel dies. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Remember to stop by our challenge blog to see the inspiring creations of our design team.
