Sailing Birthday Card

One of my blogging friends, Anne Marie, mentioned The Color Dare challenge blog a while back and I've been wanting to participate ever since, and when I saw this weeks colors I knew I just had to.  Obviously I like these color since at my last Stampin Up stamp club I ordered two out of the three colors!!  It's destiny!  The challenge was to use Night of Navy, River Rock, and Marina Mist. 

I decided to make a male birthday card.  It's seems like I never have enough of those!  I really like the way it turned out.  I hope you like it too!

Here's what I came up with:

Sailboat was cut at 4 1/4" from "Just Because" cartridge

Card Base: SU  Night of Navy 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   River Rock 4" X 5 1/4";  Marina Mist 4 1/8" X 5 3/8"
Other Cardstock / Paper: Night of Navy DP,  Chocolate Chip, makingmemories from Just Chillin' Boy pack
Ink: Night of Navy
Stamps:  PTI Polka Dots Basics, Round & Round (sentiment) Papertrey Ink has so many sentiments stamps that fit perfectly in the SU or other punches!
Accessories:  Marina Mist ribbon, SU word window & modern label puches, Cuttlebug & Argyle embossing folder, Cricut & "Just Because" Cartridge
