Sea themed - masculine card

Hello readers ! welcome again :) 
we have a beach / sea theme going on@ Beyond Grey Challenges
all u have to do is - 
Create a Card / Layout / a crafty or a sewy project 
with any hint of Sea or Beaches.

anything goes as long as its beachy or sea related.
Today i have a Sea themed masculine card for u!  
(Yeah i know photography has lilies in the background :P :P But spare that !)
 I also have an *Embossing Trick * to share with u all 
I embossed and created my own vintage paper :) 
want to know how ? follow me !
first i dipped a tea bag + some loose tea in a cup of warm water!
 (yes makes some lovely tea) 
Then with a big paint brush i painted the whole thing with tea water 
Gives the vintage paper feel.  Easy ??
Here comes the fun part ! 
this is a trick that colors your paper while u emboss !
All u have to do is, choose which side to add pigment colors to ,
 {you can use your tim holtz distress ink pads too (any pigment colors will do) }
once chosen , well have fun coloring !! 
Run it through your die cut & embossing machine and this is what u get !
I wanted it to be vintage and shabby so i didn't bother to wipe 
the excess ink from the pad before embossing.
The embossing pad i have used here is- Sizzix Embossing Folder- Clocks & Print Blocks
And this is the Sizzix Sizzlits - Washer Border
That i have used just for fun :)
I used the Sizzix Decorative Strip- Paper Rosette  on yellow paper .
And believe me ... making paper rosettes was never so easy !! thanks to tim holtz!!
with some stamped images & sentiment from Pink paislee. 
Finally some glittered chipboard letters by the girls paperie. 
If your wondering what the number 25 means , well its a beach themed birthday card
for someone :)
thankyou so much for joining me here again :) 
Good day folks !!
