The Big One

I made this card for my husband to give to a friend who turned 60 this week - he's really into fishing so I hit upon the idea of having him catch a "60" on his hook as a different way of getting the number on the card.  I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

The character stamp is a Magnolia and I made the scene using the Alota stamps winter pond scene but I only inked up the pond part and then added grass using my faber castell pencils to cover the gaps under his little jetty.  The DP is from Papermania - their new Birdsong pack - this particular one has a basket weave look to it, so I thought it went with the theme of an old fashioned fishing tackle box.  I used my EKSuccess "swiss cheese" border punch to create a decorative strip of "bubbles" down the side.


As he is mostly green, very cute and the "gone fishing" sign is a brad, then he fits the theme over at Cooking It Up With Katie so I'm entering their challenge again this week.

I'm entering Let's Ink It Up - Anything Goes as well

The Creative Card Crew want mens card this week so it fits their theme also.
