Dare 2B Artzy July challenge - masculine birthday card

Hello crafty friends,

Every month Dare 2B Artzy offers a different monthly challenge - check it out here.   If you enter a card of your own you have the chance to win a prize from Dare 2B Artzy.  This time the focus is on masculine birthday cards.  I went with a scenic style card with sailboats for mine.

I used the lightest blue from my stash as the background for the top panel.  The boats were die cut out of this patterned paper using the coordinating dies.  The "water" is two layers of this patterned paper, which I fussy cut roughly along the lines of the waves.  I stamped the bird from this stamp set and the sentiment from this stamp set.  All products are listed at the end of this post if you'd like to check out what I used.

The A2 sized card base is kraft cardstock.  I layered another panel of this dark blue patterned paper at a bit of an angle and glued the scene panel on top at a slight angle.
