Calm Seas & Smooth Sailing

Good Morning! 

Today is the Hubby's Birthday!  His 'cake' will be picked up from Marion's Pie Shop it's a Lemon Meringue Pie, his favorite.....not a fan myself, but it will make him happy!

Today's card will be entered in the Challenges at Mod Squad, Tic-Tac-Toe and the bonus one at  Stamp TV, April Foolery, You Need Two Shape(s) Up!

Mod Squad Tic-Tac-Toe

 
Top To Bottom Diagonal; Sponging, Die, Rhinestones/Pearls (I assume brads are in this group) 
 
 
I used the Gina K Designs stamp set, Enjoy The Sunshine, a handy Kit to have.  Lots of wonderful images and great sentiments.  My 2 shapes are the rectangles, 2 for the sentiment and a nice wood grain background I created using my Scor Pal and different colored inks.  The card base may even be counted as a rectangle too.  Using Spellbinders Classic Circle dies I created the life saver and then wrapped it with thin Jute Twine and popped it up on 3D dots over my sailboat image which was colored with Copic Markers.  Not Quite Navy Ink, Stickles on the water, some burlap and little brads for accents.

 
He truly is my anchor and my rock!
 
I haven't decided if I will use this for his birthday card or not.....hmmmm
 
Thanks for popping in!
 
Enjoy~~
