Hi, everyone!! Today's Friday Free 4 All Challenge over is to create a project with a vacation theme.....I needed another masculine birthday card, so I chose to use the ocean image from 'The Mighty Sea', a sentiment from the 'Fishing' Mini-set and a new banner die from the ODBD Custom Pennants Die Set.....all from Our Daily Bread designs. The card design is based on this gorgeous card from the immense and amazing gallery of Janine aka Jay_Bee, who was just dubbed Queen for the Day......congrats, Janine!!! Instead of designer paper, I chose to use burlap ribbon instead for more of a masculine look, plus it matches the linen thread which was wrapped around the banner tag. The scene was colored partly with markers and some sponging with ink pads and sponge daubers. Thanks so much for looking! Have a very blessed day!!

You used the perfect word to add to your card. The scene is gorgeous and I love it spotlighted in the circle. The touch of burlap looks just right, too (wish I could find the new spool of burlap ribbon I bought - ugh!).

Wow - gorgeous card. You really have captured the sea with your choice or ribbon and the thread.
