A trio of challenges!

We have a lot of family and friends' birthdays around this time and tonight I have made a card for my son Phil's birthday which is on Friday. I'm not sure that the card I've made is really CAS enough to fit into two of the three challenges below but as I had them all in mind when the ideas for the card were in my head, I thought I'd go with it and see.

The collage stamp is one I bought at a craft fair several years ago from Butterfly stamps which, sadly, I don't think exist anymore. This has been stamped with blue Versafine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is from the same set. To try and keep things simple they have both been simply layered in contrasting colours and put onto a background paper that has tiny anchors printed on it.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge Blog: Week 283 Masculine

CASology: Week 120 Sea
Freshly Made Sketches: 161 A sketch by Linda

Even if it's not CAS enough for the last two, it certainly fulfils the criteria for the Allsorts challenge!
Thanks for looking!
