Sail on to a great birthday!

My new card was inspired by this cute Echo Park - Sailboats paper and a new digi image from Meljens Designs (sail away).  I have been planning to make some boy oriented cards and thought this image was perfect. 

I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Small Circle and Scalloped Circles to cut my shapes.  The main card stock is from SU - Very Vanilla and the rest is from my stash.  Happy Birthday stamp is a SU set Think Happy Thoughts and the bling is Prima - Say it with Studs.

I used Copics to color the image - G12, G21, BG15, BG18, C5, R32, Y02 and Y06. 

This card is entered in the Color Throw Down - #37 , Papertake Weekly Challenge, Simon Says and Card Ideas Challenges.

Until next time - Happy Stamping!

This card is so adorable! I love the smiley face on the boat and the background paper. Thanks so much for the sweet comments on my blog. You said that you just got a Cricut and haven't figured it all out yet...I had mine for a year and a half before I discovered all it could do! I found a dvd from Above Rubies Studio that explains EVERYTHING. I had no idea a Cricut could do so much! The link to the dvd is:
It's kinda expensive ($23 US) but I thought it was well worth the money. I would send you mine but I still use it all the time for reference :)
