How to: sail away

Today's card is for a man's B'day and I used my fav sillicone stamp set to create it.
This card is a combination of a sketch from Retro Sketches
and a color combination from The Paper Players

Here are the stamps from Viva Decor marine set and a book page from an old Russian fairytale book. I crumpled the stamped map and distressed it with a distress ink. All layers are just torn out.
Here is a piece of burlap and some shells: one is bought at the craft shop (this one with a hole), and two has been brought by kids at my school from their summer holiday at the Baltic Sea.
The sentiment says 'Best wishes'.
Thank you for visiting my blog!
This card is for the following challenges:
