My Brother's Birthday Card

This is the card I made for my brother who is currently in Iraq. At first I was going to do a military-type card, and then I thought, maybe he'd like something that reminded him of something OTHER THAN the Army. This stamp set is called Set Sail, and retired long ago. I used Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, and the DP is called Western Sky. All of it is retired, as are the eyelets. I think the only thing on this card that is not retired is the River Rock CS, the hemp, and the white gel pen I used to accent the seagulls. The bottom ships are stamped in Ruby Red (retired!).
I distressed the edges of some of the layers. I hope he likes this card. Thanks for stopping by today!
