Happy (70th) Birthday Dad

I made this card for a friend, whose Dad is turning 70 in a few months (what, I'm prepared, so sue me, lol!)

He likes boats and I found this gorgeous harbour image Cornish Heritage Stamps and coloured it partially with promarkers: sandstone, caramel, cinnamon, spice, honeycomb, cool grey 3, warm grey 2, warm grey 1, pear green, marsh green, olive green, pastel blue, cyan and berry red.

The papers are from Authentique's Fresh paper pack, layered on navy blue card from papermill direct. The sentiment is computer generated. And I used bakers twine, charms and pearls to embellish.

I'm submitting this for:
- Digi Darla's Challenge #65 - Make it Masculine
- Try it on Tuesday - One for the men
- Clear it Out Challenge - Theme: Male cards / Stash: Use metal
- Sketch Saturday #261 - Sketch
