Sailboat Birthday Card

If you stopped here for the Crafty Creations 100th Challenge hop click HERE, if not you may want to check it out there are some fabulous creations and great prizes along the way.

A while back I got a few sets of Gina K Designs stamp sets and finally got around to cutting them apart so I could use them.  Her stamps are very high quality and stamp extremely well.  The sailboat is one of the stamps in the "Enjoy The Sunshine" set, I thought it was great for a male card.  My younger brother's birthday is next week so I made this card for him.  I will also post it on the Cricut message board for this weeks RAQs Challenge, as it is follows one of the sketches. 
Very little Cricut, just the ovals cut and layered 3 times.  I colored two sailboats using my ProMarkers, then cut one of them out and pop dotted it on top of the other one.  The turquoise strip of paper I Cuttlebugged with a folder that sort of matched the paper pattern.    And since I need to use it next week I finished the inside.
The sentiment is computer generated and I finally remembered to print it directly on the inside of the card before I put it together!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I really appreciate each and everyone of your comments.  Happy New Year!
