Another Male B'day Card

 This card is for my cousin Pat, he is a keen surfer and fisherman.  He loves the coast and is currently living at Mackay, QLD right on the beach.  I used Mo's Digital image of the fisherman.  I distressed the edges and inked them in Creamy Caramel ink to give an aged effect.  I used some linen twine and kept the layout pretty simple.  The sentiment is from SU Whimsical Words set.  Card is Whisper White and Bashful Blue and the darker blue is a scrap of designer paper.  I coloured with Stampin' Write markers and used crystal effects on the water.
I would like to play along in the following challenges:
Quixotic Challenges - Make a Splash
Crafty Creations - Distressing
Paper Play Challenges - No Patterned Paper
Charisma Cards - Quote Me

It is ANZAC day here in Australia today so we went to a morning service and then down to Mum and Dad's for breakfast with some for the family.  It is nice to get together.  It is raining here so I have changed into my comfy clothes and plan to stay indoors and craft.

Thanks for popping over and visiting my blog!
