Dads Birthday

Afternoon All.
Well tomorrow is my Dads birthday, so I have been playing to make him a card. He has sailed all his life, and loves the old clipper boats, so The Open Sea set seemed most appropriate. The background card is midnight muse, as is the blue stamping, the other is soft suede. The background has also been stamped using the World Map, which is rapidly becoming one of my favourites. I do hope he will like it.
If you are tempted by any of the stamps I use, if you click on their names, the link will take you straight to them in my online shop.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
One Crazy Stamper - anything goes
Our Creative Corner - A three colour challenge
Sister Act Card Challenge - anything goes
Crafty Little Fairies - one for the boys
Penny's Paper Crafty - lots of layers
Papertake Weekly - lots of lovely layers
Thanks for looking, and I'll be back soon
Hugs Sharon xx
