Nautical Happy Birthday Card

This card is inspired by two wonderful challenges
SK 163 US 194 

While the inspiration photo is rather feminine, I took a masculine look
~ a nautical touch to the card ~
The fishbone paper is from DCWV Tradewinds Stack.
The Spellbinders die cut birds are from my stash cut out of a shoebox.
Used Sizzix Framelits Tickets for the frame.
Twine is Maya Road and grosgrain ribbon from my stash.
Piggyback for Unscripted is Happy Birthday sticker by Mrs Grossman's.
The initial card looked like a boat in the ocean but not quite it.
So I modified the look with the brown grosgrain ribbon and the birds
and the result is fantastic, me thinks!
So Happy Birthday to the Birthday Boy!!
