It is your birthday soon

Good Morning

Our first spring rain has arrived, though our temperatures also dropped with about 10° C. This morning it was a challenge to take a proper photo since the light is very poor. Yesterday I just had this mojo to make this maritime card with Edwin Hangin from the Magnolia series. I've found these very nice scrapbook papers and I had the embellishments in my stash. I've used Sweet Sketch Wednesday's sketch to put all the elements together.

Challenges I'm joining:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 170 - Sketch
Cards und More #64 - Maritime
Papelito's Stamp #10 - Anything goes
Crafty sentiment 4/9 - Male Card
Creative Craft Challenge 4/9 - One for the boys
A Gem of a Challenge #54 - a Boy thing

Thank you and have a nice day.
