My Brother In Laws Birthday Card

AsI metioned in the previous post, I am a bit behind, so some posts may be out of order. Here comes one. My Brother In Law John had a birthday the end of February. I kind of struggle with Masculine cards, as I love bows, flowers and ruffles. And pink, and glitter. But having said that~ I think this one came out pretty good.  I was quite pleased at the end result.

The stamp set is a retired Stampin Up set that I really like. Its called "Set Sail" and I think it was first released in 2004? I did not even know about SU then. I purchased this one on Ebay years later.

This is the inside of the card. The row of boats is from the same set. The sentiments on the front and inside the card are from a current SU set called "Perfectly Penned". I love the font they used on this set. There are 4 sentiments in the set.

The papers are from my scrap drawers. There is always some awesome paper in there. That must come from my hoarding tendencies. I love paper and hate to get rid of any. I liked the card so much, I made this one. Almost the same, but the image and background is straight compared to the above version, where its tilted. I used green twine, and Chocolate Chip ink form SU.
Many thanks for stopping by...
