Dad's birthday card

My father's birthday is coming up this weekend.  We won't see him and we actually gave him his presents about 2mos. ago (when we last saw him and knew he could use them immediately... why wait?) so I definitely needed to get a card in the mail to him.  I ordered The Open Sea from Stampin' Up just for masculine cards- I think it'll probably see some definitely use.  If you're familiar with this, you may notice that the sea seems... extended?  I added a bit more to make it fill the square a smidge more.

Sorry for the blue tint- I was able to get a picture during one of the rare bits of sun we've had the past few days but it was definitely blue shadows at the time.

Stamps: (The Open Sea, Sincere Salutations): Stampin' Up

Paper: (Basic Black, Whisper White): Stampin' Up, (Deep Turquoisey paper): ?
Ink: (Basic Black): Stampin' Up, (Broken China, Faded Jeans): Tim Holtz
Twine: ? (received unlabelled in a blog candy pack)
