This is the birthday card I made for my older brother. As I always say, guy cards aren't easy. I went with an orangey/yellowy card base, a wave patterned paper that I embossed with swirls, added a fussy cut banner to the top, a strip of plaid to the right (all Fancy Pants Papers), an Anna Griffin collage topped with some beachy elements like anchors, a fish tag, and palm trees sticker. The "birthday wishes" sentiment is die cut from a Tim Holtz die. I also added a few sparkly blue bubble stickers to the background.
