Every Journey begins with a Single Step

Ok today I have finished this male birthday card - I don't make them very often but I did have this gorgeous sailing ship stamped up in my stash.  I just masked the image and "misted" the background with Magical Micas and to give it a really sparkly finish, misted on some Perfect Pearls.  I masked and darkened the bottom where the sea might be and used a white gel pen on the breaking wave tops.  I lightly coloured the ships hull and the flags  and layered it on a teal background. I searched for an appropriate sentiment and foam mounted that and then decided to add just a very small birthday sentiment. I am posting to CASology #152 and The Challenge #40 at Always Playing with Paper who are both having a "Nautical" theme. Also to Shopping Our Stash #207 - a Male card and Simon Says Monday Challenge - is to use Stamps and Mist.
Thanks for taking a peek
