Birthday card for my neighbor

My neighbor will be 81 years young tomorrow and he loves to go boating. Thought this fabulous Baithouse stamp from Art Impressions would be perfect for his card. I stamped the image with Memento Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Embossed background layer with Cuttlebug folder then added ribbon, button and jute.

I am entering:

Art Impressions First Challenge - Use Ribbon

Southern Girls - Dry embossing

Aly's Sunday Challenge - For the guys

Paper Play Challenges - Week 4 - Layer it up

Stampin for the Weekend - Challenge #2 - Getting Warmed Up
I'm dreaming of warm sunny summer days when we can go out on the lake.
