Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge PPA213

I totally missed this Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA213) this week, so this is going to be an uber quick post.  There's something about the timing on their challenges, that I keep missing.  It must be the East Coast time slot.  Oh well, I'll get it right next time.

Here's the sketch that got my interest up:

Here's My Card:
This is another Masculine Birthday card made with Maritime Designer Series Paper and the Open Sea stamp set.  If you like this Maritime DSP there's still time to get in on the Designer Series Paper Buy 3 Get The Fourth for Free - this special promo ends on July 31st. 

I'm so sad that the Perfectly Penned stamp set was retired this year.  It's one of my faves for masculine cards.  An alternative to this set is Sassy Salutations
The Happy Birthday sentiment in the Sassy Salutations stamp set isn't as large in this stamp set, however it's still got a heavy masculine quality to it.  The other bonus is the additional great sentiment stamps in this set, such as Feel Better and Congratulations. 
Stamp Sets:  The Open Sea, Perfectly Penned (retired)
Ink:  Night of Navy, Real Red, Coastal Cabana
Designer Series Paper:  Maritime
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Night of Navy, Read Red
Accessories:   2 1/2" Circle Punch, 3" Circle Framelit, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Square Punches, Adhesive and Dimensionals.

Happy Stampin!
