Animal Antics Creation #6

I have another card featuring "Animal Antics" for you today.  This time it is a Father's Day card featuring a cute little seahorse.
 The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4" and is made from a navy blue cardstock.  I cut a red mat at 5 1/4"x4" and then a white one at 5 1/8"x3 7/8."  I wrapped those layers with red and navy twine.  The scalloped oval is a Spellbinders Nestabilites die and is adhered to the card with foam tape.

The seahorse was cut from "Animal Antics" at 3."  I also used foam tape to adhere him to the oval.  I covered the dark part of him with midnight blue Stickles for just a little glitter.  The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the "For the Boys" set.  I added the "dad" at the end of the "you're a real ace" sentiment, but it is from the same set.  I cut the strip the sentiment is on into a banner and added it to the card.

This a pretty clean and simple one, but when it comes to masculine cards it seems like less is more.
I made this card to fit the following challenges:
365 Cards: "Day 154" - select one sketch and one challenge from Feburary, March, or April to create your own challenge (I used the sketch from Day 34 and the twine challenge from Day 61)
