Sailing In The Deep Blue Sea

I'm sharing a bit of an unusual(for me) card today. 

I bought a pad of lovely glittery patterned 'summer' papers from Aldi or Lidl (to me they are the same shop) at the weekend. I needed to make a card for a toddler about to have his first birthday and used a cut-off of one of the papers as a sea scene background, with a Digistamp Boutique image 'floating' against it....

I've fussy cut the image after colouring with pro-markers and attached using foam pads. I've also cut a couple of boats from leftover paper and raised them on foam pads aswell. The greeting was made in Publisher using Cheri font. Finally I've die-cut a number '1' and added this to the sail.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
