Happy Birthday Ship

Happy Friday! This is a birthday card I made for Tim's brother, whose birthday was last Friday.   He's a nautical guy, so these two Flourishes sets (A Guiding Light and Antique Map) fit the bill perfectly.  My layout is from this month's Sketch for you to Try

I stamped the Antique Map image for the background panel on the front, and on the inside.  The compass rose paper is from Graphic 45.  My sailor's knot was tied based on Barbara Anders' tutorial.  The sentiment is from Flourishes' Tag Lines set, and I added a trio of black rhinestones below it.  Not too bad for a masculine card, eh?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
