Birthday Card ~ Nautical Celebration (post #3)

For my third card I used this nautical collage stamp.
I colored it with all kinds of Copic markers then tore the edges.
But wait I didn't stop there.
I decided it needed a tattered frame so I tore up some more card stock and then layered them.
I liked how the scroll sentiment looked on my other card so I repeated it but this time I accented the little curls on the scroll with a white gel pen to finish it off.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card fronts torn from assorted card stock.
*Nautical stamp from Running Rhino & Co.
*Sentiment is made using two Verve Stamps sets called Happy Thoughts and So Happy
*Sentiment is stamped on the Scroll Die from Verve Stamps
*Cording from my stash.
 May your day always be filled with love.
