Birthday Card for my Brother

Good Morning,

Today is my baby brother's birthday.  I went through my silhouette files and I found a pop box card by Lori Whitlock.  It was for Father's day, but no problem, I just removed the sentiment and put in my own.

I embossed the piers with the seagulls to give them a woody look.  I chalked the top waves with white and the light coming from the lighthouse with yellow.

Here is the back of the card, the sentiment is from JustRite and it is called "Anchors Away".

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
