Happy (boating) birthday

A friend of mine has a birthday coming up. He loves his sail boat so I thought I would incorporate that into a birthday card. I used a die from First Edition for the sail boat and paper pieced it with some patterned paper from Echo Park.

I then used a lot of Lawn Fawn *smile* and cut the waves, the frame and also used the new Happy happy happy stamp set to emboss the sentiment. I didn't have any stamp that looked like a seagull but found the "heat smoke" from the "On the mend" stamp set doubled as birds beautifully. There are 3 lines in that stamp but I only inked up two which made in to fairly "believable" birds.

The background is done with distress inks. I then turned the cards into shakers by adding foam tape to the frame and adding sequins to the inside. A couple of blue and clear rhinestones are also glued to the waves so they stay in place permanently.
