Male Happy Birthday

I love making cards that have something to do with the beach or summer.

This is another card I made but forgot to take a photo of till we got to my sons house so had to find a spot and take a photo with my phone.

This was totally an idea that fermented for a bit then all came together to make me happy. The panel was made using Distress Inks blended, blues and a little bit of green. First I stamped the waves and embossed with white embossing powder. My blending was quite light for once.
The surf boards were stamped from the same set and I used ink pads "Kaleidacolor" with five colours. I can't remember when I bought these but they are still brilliant to use and I love the colours in each ink pad. I think I have about 6 different selections. Anyhooo I did one with the blue/greens and one with the orange/yellows then I used the Die cut that goes with the stamp set. Don't look too close or you will see where I am still trying to line those buggers up with the stamped image :)
Stamped 'Happy' and used the PTI Birthday Die. Love this one I do.

Finished the card off with a couple of teeny weeny shells we found on the beach.

Thought I would enter this is AAA Cards: Game #40 For the Guys

Thought I would also enter this in another challenge I found today. I love digital stamps but in this instance I have used a rubber stamp and from what I read this is ok, or is it okay to use a digital??? from another company, well will have to wait and see.

Hope you enjoy your visit.
