A Fishy Birthday Card! (STB and SACC)

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!

My daughter asked me to make a card for her boss who likes to fish and I only had this paper and these little fish stickers (which I have been hoarding for a very long time!!) So I thought that this cabin from Taylored Expressions (Cozy Cabin) would tie them all together.  What do you think?

 Love this paper, I have it in both 12x12 and the 6x6 paper pad.  It's the collection from Simple Stories called I{Heart} Summer.  I used a card stock base called Desert Storm, the local scrapbook store (where I work, see the sidebar) makes packages up with matching envelopes and it's very masculine and so convenient.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches (Sentiment Sampler).  I've colored the cabin with Copic Markers after stamping it on Neenah white card stock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The die is a Spellbinder Nestabilities Label 1, I've inked the edge with Distress ink (Frayed Burlap). The button is from my stash and I've added Glossy Accents to the windows, one of the fish I've cut out from the designer paper and added the glossy accents to it, too. Can you see the shiny/scaly fish? What I wanted to put there was a piece of tackle, a tied fly but it was too late to go through all my dh's fishing gear in the shed! It would have been perfect.... oh well next fishy card!

I'll be entering this card at:
Seize the Birthday Challenge (anything goes birthday)

  We are expecting rain all weekend which we really need here in California, perfect excuse to stay in but our oldest grandson is celebrating his 7th birthday on Saturday so we will be heading out to be with him at Flips for Kids.  Should be a fun birthday party.  Can't wait to show the card I'm making for him!

Thanks for visiting!

The works of the LORD are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them.  Psalm 111:3
