A Birthday Celebration

I'm guest designing today at Pause, Dream, Enjoy Linky Party, and I couldn't be more excited! Thank you, Janis, for the invitation!
The new theme for the linky party starting today is "Celebration".
Since my brother's birthday is in a few days, this was a great theme for me!

All the supplies for this card are from Close To My Heart. This stamp set has become a new favorite, using it for birthday, sympathy, and everyday cards.  
This card was for my brother, and he loves to sail.  He'll love the boat!  I kept the card flat for mailing and didn't add too many layers to keep the feel more masculine.
Here's another one I made at the same time, with a shade darker ink on the sailboat:

Which do you like better? You'll have to let me know in your comments.  Thanks for visiting, and please link up your celebration projects at Pause, Dream, Enjoy Linky Party.  Again, thanks to Janis and the design team for this opportunity to guest design.
