Celebration By The Sea

Good Monday Morning!
Donna Phelan back again!  Today I will be sharing a Masculine Birthday card with you. 
The dies from the Dies R Us Store made it so easy to create this Nautical Masculine card.  A theme that's near and dear to my heart!  I created my background using that fabulous Distress Windham Collage die by Memory Box.  Stamping and coloring my lighthouse so I would know where to place the other fantastic dies.  Image colored with Copic Markers.  

I die cut 3 of the Starfish from the Sand Dollar And Starfish set by Cheery Lynn.   Check out the texture on them, perfect!  I also sponged the edges a bit using Antique Linen ink.  I then placed them on top of the Distress Windham Collage opening, almost looks like they have been caught in fish net.  I layered the Curly Word Celebrate from Die Versions  3 times to create a chipboard like accent. 
That particular die is no longer available but check out this one out, same great die, affordable price!
