Similar but Different

Hello.  I know it has been a few days.  School is about to start back and that means work for me.  I didn't get all of my projects done, so I have been working on them.  Plus I just needed to step away for a few days.

I am working my second job this weekend but I hope to have some time to play.  I saw this card several days ago and I knew I wanted to make a version of it.  I think the original card is so classy and I thought it would be a great card for some of the males on my card list.

I couldn't find the sailboat I had in mine.  I looked through my library several times but couldn't find it.  So I used this one instead.  I think it came out really good.

The original card had polka dots behind the boat but I added a swirl texture.  I thought it looked more like the water.  I also added to line of small circles.

I hope you like my version of the card.

I am going to use this card for the  following challenges:
   Creative Card Crew - Embossing
   Pile It On - By The Sea / Beach
   Curtain Call - Tropical Trip
   Clear It Out - Anything Goes
   Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Anything Goes
   Brown Sugar Challenges - Kraft Paper
   Artistic Inspiration - Anything Goes 
   Ave 613 Create - Anything Goes
   Die-Cutting Divas - Inspired by Another Crafter

I off to go to bed.  Hopefully I will get some sleep.  Have a great night/day.
