It's yarr birthday.....

The SSCC 'masculine' challenge was an appropriately timed challenge for me.  My husband's birthday is at the end of May so I used this challenge to make his birthday card.  He was a sailor on an aircraft carrier back in the day so Pirate Edwin is right up his alley.  Although he wasn't a pirate, he kept in touch with the water using a ten foot john boat he used to row up and down some of the little lakes around our city.  He had a trolling motor, but I think the exercise was something he really enjoyed.  He hauled that little boat around in a Ford S10 long bed pickup until it had a fateful encounter with a big buck deer several years ago.  The pickup was destroyed, as was the buck, and the john boat waits patiently behind the shed for a new pickup that may never arrive.  My husband is embarking on his second career as a 'retired gentleman' as of May 31.  He plans to travel with camera in hand, taking pictures that usually make me gasp.  He has a wonderful eye and seeing things through it causes me to take a second look at everyday objects.

The classic oval diecut was embossed with the Cuttlebug Clockworks embossing folder.  The barrel was popped up and Edwin layered on top of the barrel.  The sentiment was stamped on pearlescent vellum.  He's a little cutie, right?
