MFW - Birthday Card Challenge

I have to make a few Birthday cards this weekend cause I am not going to have my usual  "last minute time to get 'em out".  AND, as luck would have it, there is a Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World  :)

The base card is terra cotta, the blue and brown stripped paper is from a Scrapbook pack of 'Baby Boy' papers that I found in my stash, from God knows where or when.  The sun and clouds are foam shapes from the Dollar Store and the Sailboat is 3-D chipboard.  I placed a piece of Elmer's Designer Masking Tape under the boat to mimic water.

I think this card fits the bill ~ Cooper, my grandson, is taking sailing lessons this summer. Can you guess how old he is going to be on this Birthday?
