Masculine Birthday Card

This card was made for a challenge over at Birthday Sundaes challenge #11, Wacky Wednesday ch# 40. It is always a bit more difficult to make a birthday card for a man!  For some reason they just don't want a cutsy card with lace and pearls!  So here is the card I came up with.

Ok, so it is kinda cutsy in a masculine sort of  way!  Most guys like the water, boats and of course a sunny day to just I think most guys would like it.  Here are the particulars:
  • card is 4 x 8
  • paper: dcwv for the dot paper, the cloud paper I am clueless as it's been in my stash a long time
  • cricut cartridge used  Life's a Beach - boat pg. 57, wave pg. 57, sun pg. 44
  • VersaMagic chalk ink in Aegean Blue
  • embellishments:  button - the paper co., red Baker's Twine, 3 metal buttons - Heidi Grace, pop dots for dimension on the boat, sun and words on front.
Hope you enjoyed the boat ride!  Thanks for taking time to look.  I love your comments and if the "follow" thing is working (lol) would love to have you for a follower!  Have a GREAT week!
