Noah's Ark card

Greetings.  Today I am sharing a card I made for the 2 Sketches 4 You Challenge #63 this week.  I REALLY like this sketch and will use it again and again. 

I am making some cards to send to our teen helpers at church to thank them for their service and encourage them.  When we have 14 three year olds in a room, we need the extra set of hands and the teens are wonderful with the kids.  This week I wanted to make a more masculine card for one of our male teens.  We have several. 

I stamped the Ark on cream paper, colored it with watercolor pencils and cut it out. 
I made the sun with a large gem and that old MM wire that has been in my stash for years. 
 I added some Glossy Accents for some watery shine. 
I thought the jute string and colors really made the card more masculine.

Stamp: Stampin' Up "God is Love"
Inks: Memento black; Distress Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo 
Papers: Hobby Lobby
Other: gem, MM wire, jute string, pop dots, Cricut "George" for the circle, Glossy Accents, Stickles
