Retirement - Color Dare #369

This is my DT card for the ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #369 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #342.  

This Board gave me many choices...however finally decided TicTacToe Column 3 "Toffee, Glacier, Espresso" for an excellent combination for a masculine retirement card.  Chose a focal point of a sea vessel and how cool would that be for retirement...sailing out to sea.  I've had the wood grain embossing dies for awhile, thought this would be a good background for my focal point, brushed on some glacier to bring out the woodgrain, layered and adhered some with 3D thin foam tape.  The ship was added to a stitched die using expresso cardstock, added another scalloped frame in glacier and both adhered with 3D foam tape.  Die cut the sentiment and glued in bottom right-hand corner.  

Please visit each of these challenges to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges and maybe you can combine challenges too. Color My Heart Color Dare challenges are carried forward for two weeks, so please join us and also check out our previous Challenge #368 Inspiration Board.
