A Card for a Special Uncle

Good Morning Everyone, Im so sorry Ive not been around for a few days but have been rather busy, and yesterday I had a fabulous day with my middle daughter Sarah and her four children, it was so nice to see her in fact we hadnt seen them for over a year so we had lots of things to catch up on. Shes a very busy person and doesnt get a lot of time to spare so it was so nice of her to take a day to spend it with us.
Anyway todays card has been created for my husbands Uncle, hes in fact my dear father in laws brother and now that hes gone, Uncle Alec is very special and reminds me so much of dear FIL, and hes just gone into a home and I felt it would be nice to let him know just how much we are thinking of him.
Uncle Alec loves yachts and has in fact made several in the past (not the full size ones) and has sailed them on a local pond in Edinburgh and I gather has won several cups for it, no motors are used by the way its just plain sailing.
The images are Stampin Up stamps and I thought they would be just ideal for him, Ive stamped it onto white card then coloured the image with my copic pens, afterwards I cut it out with my rotatrim and  mounted it onto a piece of blue pearlescent card. The sentiment is also part of the same stamp set and have done the same with that.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card with just one paper from the Kay Miller Downloads "Do you see what I sea" and this is a wavy pattern on a white background. I then stuck my image towards the left handside with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. The last think is the anchor charm thats been stuck on the left hand.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
