Boat Card

Hey Hey,

My co-teacher's birthday is coming up. She likes quite a few things, but I had already made her a snowmobiling card, cowgirl boot with hat because she loves to line dance, and then a saloon door card. In the summer she spends a lot of time on her boat so I made her this boat card:

I started by creating the waves using the technique I found here. I used the same distress ink colors as in the link. I then made the boat using my silhouette cameo. I put acetate on the back for the windows. I used my silhouette sketch pens to write the "It's Your Birthday..." I attached the pieces to the card and then used my sketch pens for the saying on the inside as well.

The inside says:

I put the inside saying on a blue background to help match the front of the card.
