Sketch Saturday Challenge #267

There is a new sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday.  I have the Father's Day card I sent my dad this year.  It would be a great masculine birthday card too.
The sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp!  The prize is a $25 store voucher, which will go to the winner of Sketch Challenge #267.

All images are welcome at Sketch Saturday, all you have to do is follow the sketch.  Here is Sketch #267 (Created by Jen):
The image I used today is from Our Daily Bread "The Waves on the Sea", which was part of the May release.  I also used the Fishing net background which was part of a Fishing BundleThis card was pretty straight forward, I did manipulate the sketch a bit - shortening it. 
To create the sun, I used one of the peel off papers from a pop dot, believe it or not.  I find them all over the house - LOL.  I used some repositionable adhesive to place it in the sky.  Then, I used a blender fluid and Q-tip technique, to color the sun, sky and sea.  You soak the Q-tip with blender fluid and go over the sky.  Then add a drop of reinker to the other side of the Q-tip and create a nice soft wash of color.  The sun is YR21 and YR23.  The sky is BG10, sadly perhaps a bit subtle for my camera.
