Day on the Ocean

We've just heard from our daughter that her cat has been run over. They took her to the vet, but she was too hurt and they have put her to sleep. (Rachel, sorry little Gracie has gone, sending you love and a big hug, Mum.)
I don't feel much like chatting, so will just share the card I made for a challenge and have realised that it has already finished.
I've used SU Night of Navy for the basecard, a layer of SU Real Red and then 2 different DP's also from Stampin'Up. The image is from a retired set called "Seaworthy" and the anchor on the inside is from a current set called "The Open Sea" The sentiment is from SU set "Petite Pairs" I coloured the image with Copic Markers and cut it out with a deckled oval die and then mounted it onto a piece of red and trimmed around it. I popped it up with foam dots and added 3 red rhinestones to the right hand corner.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge #102 - Sketch - I did mine on a rectangular card instead of square.
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Challenge #181 - A Man's Card.
Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - #63 - It's a Man Thing
