Card for a Bloke

I have some bloke birthdays coming up soonin the family. I have a few days break from work so am taking the opportunity to get a bit of crafting done as well. This one is using the otters from Delicious Doodles. One member of the family in particular has always liked the water. Co-incidence he's a piscean?

The sketch followed is that over on Crazy 4 Challenges. The otters were coloured with pencils. Backed onto pale green. The embossed brown panel at the bottom has a slight golden sheen. I had some "rocks" left over from a project last year. This seemed the ideal place to put them.
The sentiment is stamped in green and brushed over with a brown pigment ink after edge punching it.

I am entering this into the Crazy 4 Challenges as it is their sketch.
I am entering this into the challenge over at Creative Card Crew - Card for a Male
