Quick Birthday Card and some sailing shots!

Sorry I didn't post yesterday but I was on the water for the day.  I was following these guys around trying to get a few shots!.  Some of you will know that two of my passions are photography and sailing - so when I can combine the two, I do!.  I was on the water yesterday but not sailing myself.... just trying to get some good shots of these young sailors testing their mettle against wind and tide.
You can tell that there was plenty of wind! and little sunshine popped out occasionally from behind the clouds whilst the young sailors managed to race 4 races.  And now... onto a card share
Just a quick card share today.  I love trying to leave some white space on these new tall card blanks I bought recently.  I had this pretty dress by Crafttime in my stash and I decided to add smooth gemstones by Hero Arts to the flower centers.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful start to your week.

Your card is so sweet. And the photos - awesome. Do your boys sail? We had a Laser when the kids were younger and both of them can sailed Optimists for a while.
