Birthday Card for male using CTMH Seaside Greetings bundle "Bring Back My Pack"

Hello friends!   It is getting warmer in Southern CA.  I hope everyone is able to have time to craft/create.  I feel lost when I don't have my crafting time.   I really feel that it has a healing quality to be able to create something for someone else.  

I usually use bright bold colors; but wanted to try and create some cards using our CTMH Seaside Paper/Stamp set that was brought back.  The colors are gorgeous and some are brighter than the others; but I should have used a darker color for this sailboat or maybe embossed it.  I hope you enjoy it anyway.  It was fun to create.

See below for this CTMH Seaside "Bring Back My Pack" special or click here.  This card is created using the first version of Seaside Paper Pack; so there might be a few colors that have changed to update it for this special.

I couldn't figure out which photo to use; so I have used both.  LOL!  Photos are so weird and they just don't show the true colors very well.  Which one do you like better?  The first one or second one.  I would really like your opinion.  I can't remove either of them; because I used both off and on in the challenges listed below.  LOL!

  7. Gloria, thank you so much for sharing your project with us - I really like the first one best... sharper and brighter in color! The dies you have used for this design are fun and fitting for your focal image. The lighter inking for the sailboat is a unique technique that makes it retreat into the background and the embellishments are the first thing you see.
