Serenity Birthday

Hi, everyone!  This is a birthday card for my brother, who loves to fish.  I have used three challenges in the making of this card.  This week's Shining the Light Challenge over at Our Daily Bread designs is the awesome sketch to the left of this paragraph....this was very fun....and pretty quick too!!  Also, over at Splitcoast Stampers, the Color Challenge this week was a buffet of aquas and gray....I chose to combine Smoky Slate with Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Island Indigo....my dessert option was "thumping" technique.....the background and image stamp were both inked with an ink pad, then "thumped" with colored markers to give a variation in color.  The background worked well, but the technique on the image was not very visible since the colors used were similar.  Today's Friday Free 4 All Challenge is to create a birthday card.....no problem, my brother's birthday is Sunday, so now I'm ahead of schedule....yay!!!
