Happy Birthday Ship with Watercoloring

Hello and welcome!
Zoe and I had some time in the cave this morning! So after a really long walk, she decided to take a nap in her pen while I worked!  

I made this masculine birthday card for my stash and also with several challenges in mind!

Here's the supplies I used:
Distress Inks in blues and aquas to watercolor the background pieces 
Distress Inks in yellows and oranges to watercolor the pieces for the sun
Lindey's Magicals on a piece of card stock, to cut the birds, boat flag and boat bottom from
Patterned paper from "Get Away" by Echo Park and "Beach Day" by Carta Bella
Sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's "Critter Concert"
Lawn Fawn's Stitched Wave Border Dies
Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink
Die from Cheapo Dies

Here's a closer view:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
