The Kraft Journal... Father's Day Card

Happy Friday!

I have a card to share with you for this week's The Kraft Journal.  Theme this week is "Just for Him"

My card:

I started out with Crumb Cake card base, followed with Not Quite Navy card stock.  The card is sponged with Sahara Sand ink and Bashful Blue ink, masking off different areas to create the ocean and sand.  The rock stamps & the flying birds (unknown company) were stamped in Basic Black, and colored with a grey pencil.  The other birds are from SU! Wetlands Stamp Set.  The sentiment is from Michael's Craft Store, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  For a final last touch, I added some green leaves from the same stamp set on the bottom right hand side of the card.
Other challenges:
The Pink Elephant Challenge - Happy Father's Day
Catered Crop - Manly Men
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #199 - Special Man
