Morning and today I am posting a card I made for BIL birthday in November.The galleon stamp was from a stamp swap last year on FB.
The background was a painted piece but the moon smudged and was destined for the bin -decided I didn't mind the smudged moon so stamped the galleon and added some white acrylic to the waves and matted onto black card.

It's perfectly gorgeous Carol, worthy of a frame in my opinion! I am sure he loved it.
A great card Carol and the background looks really good - definitely too good to ditch.
Glad to see you're feeling better.
WOW! Carol, such an effective card and beautiful too. The moon enhanced by "crashing waves!" in the distance and with movement around the ship, is fabulous. I LOVE this card. Far too brilliant for the bin.
Hope you're feeling recovered?
A beautiful card Carol - lovely stamp! Glad you're starting to feel better! Big hugs rachel x
This card is so beautiful! It gives me shivers!
This is a lovely male themed card Carol, a beautiful stamp and great use of your 'almost discarded' background - there's always a way round most 'bloopers'.
Glad to see you back blogging again.
Wauw Carol what a great card you’ve made! I like the stamp but also the background is fabulous!
Hugs and love for you xxx
Hello Carol, so glad you finally got your card, I sent it ages ago and was wondering if it arrived..but now it has, so I'm glad about that and really happy to hear you are feeling better..stay safe and well..
Carol, this is absolutely stunning! The vibrancy of the blue with the ships silhouette and the white waves! BEAUTIFUL!
Super creation Carol - love that background! Shabneez x
I am so glad you didn't ditch that background as it is fantastic, it works so well with the galleon stamp and black matting, love it xx
Your background is beautiful and so perfect for the ship.
That smudged moon is perfect for this work. Isn't it great that what is a mistake/discard for one project is wonderful for another? CarolG
A fabulous masculine card, I love the stamp you have used.
