In keeping with the beach theme, this card I think would male a great birthday card for a guy. I made the scene in Photoshop and printed on 80lb Neenah cardstock. There is a slight difference you will notice between the waterline and the skyline. I added the sand paste and sponged on some distress twigs inks, then sponged on coral inks to distinguish the shoreline. I added a few shells on foam dots also painted with the coral, and wrapped the layers in twine. The top is matted with 2 layers plus the base, and the 3 top layers are on foam strips raising the card from the base.  A few pearls washed up on shore ...
