Fish tales

My father-in-laws birthday is coming up soon, so I created this card w/him in mind. He really likes to fish, so I used an image from Prairie Fairy Stamps called "Fisherman Lewis".

I LOVE that he comes both colored and uncolored.  It saves alot of time when trying to do cards from time to time. I just added some Glossy Accents on his glasses and some 'shimmer' to the water w/my Gelly Roll Clear Star pen. I wanted to make it look like he 'flipped' the line out onto the card.  So, I strung twine from the bottom of the pic, up and back around and finished it off with some actual spinning lures.

I forgot to take a pic of the inside, but I wrote ~ Tell all the fish tales you want, it's your special day. I really hope he likes it  : )
