Sailing Away

I seem to have quite a few birthdays in August, this one is for my Uncle.  He and my Aunt own their own boat and a remember, as a child, staying on it over the summer holidays (hence the summer links!)

This was created with a boat I've designed especially for this card (I'm sure it'll pop up on DigiSparkle over the next couple of months, once I've created a few other images to go with it!) I created all the elements on the card and then added a frame on top using dimensionals.  This card was created using ideas fom elsewhere, I got the idea for creating the waves using a circle punch from Wendy here at Paper Ink and Smiles.  I got the sun rays idea (which incidentally looks softer IRL) from Geri at Geri's cards here is her tutorial.  

All in all I'm pleased with it (I just hopes it goes in the post ok!)
