Sea-soned Birthday Wishes

I'm off the Australia next Saturday and I thought I'd better leave some birthday love for my husband who will have his birthday while I'm away.   He loves the open sea and I'm sure he'll appreciate this card.

The sentiments and images are all from the WMS Ocean Bound set and the images were all cut on the Silhouette from cut files provided by Waltzing Mouse.  The Chevron background stamp and Mini Pinstripe are also from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.

I'm entering this in the Dynamic Duos #88.  The colours are perfect as my husband has just received news that he now has dual Australian/Luxembourgish nationality, and these colours are very close to the Luxembourgish flag colours.

Once again I was inspired by the sketch at Mojo Monday.

I am also entering this in Seize the Birthday where the Topping is Chevrons.

Stamps : WMS Ocean Bound, WMS Mini Pinstripe, WMS Zig Zag Backgrounder
Ink : VersaMark, Versafine Satin Red, VersaColor Lagoon Blue,
Accessories : Sizzix Framelits Banners, Clear embossing powder, White embossing powder, Silhouette Cameo and WMS Ocean Bound Cut files.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your week
