Happy Birthday Shades of blue

I've decided to make my 21 year old son a birthday card with a sailboat on it.  This past year he got a tattoo of a ship on his arm, so I think he might like this.

Challenges I would like to enter:

I ran across this challenge over at AAA Cards Game #3

I am casing a card by Linda Beesom.  She made a lovely card.  Thank you Linda for the inspiration.  The ideas I have taken from her card are:

1.  I stamped my background pattern with multiple colors
2.  I used the same sketch she used
3.  My theme is birthday too
4.  I rounded all the corners like Linda did.

Supplies used
White cardstock
Blue Copic Marker
Stampin Up inkpads -Lovely Lilac, Bliss Blue, Taken with Teal
white pentel sunburst pen
Stampin up stamp from the Delight set
PSX Sailboat stamp (stamp for sale $8.00)

    1. Thank you Vicki. It is a beautiful stamp, I think I'll start using it more often. :) Thanks for the nice comment.

  3. Great card Sher. Sure your son will be thrilled to receive it, clever idea to pick up on his tattoo.

  4. Perfect card for your son!
    All the elements you chose to CASE come together so lovely!

  5. Sweet! Congrats on the young man too! What a detailed stamp, I grew up on the water- miss it terribly from Tucson AZ. Your background is darling, the mixed colors look great! And yes, you've followed the sketch tightly. Well done Sher! We have so enjoyed your visit to AAA Cards, please play with us often. Big hugs to you and your son, Victoria Lavender
