Happy Birthday Card

Made this super-duper easy birthday card for our friends' grandson.  Just cut a section out from a beach scene design paper, added the colored and cut image and applied the sentiment. 

Shucks, the color is actually more vibrant in real life.  My phone camera isn't the greatest.
