A Right Fishy Birthday Card

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Last night I finally managed to finish yet another male birthday card for another member of the family that just happens to like fishing

and on that note I just have to say how thrilled I was to be one of the lucky winners from Marianne's mega candy, which arrived on my door step today 
just look at all these cuties, please note the fishing themed one top right, think that may be one of the first I open :)
thank you Marianne xx

So here is the first fishing male card I have created, I am still colouring the other up
This is an 8 x 8 mega card, using the next to largest oval and scallop oval grand nesties.
The base colour and contrast colour is a pearlescent green. The papers from the same Making Cards magazine.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I added a ribbon down the centre with a double bow at the top and a little fish charm.  The tiny pearls are brown and from the Hobby House.

Which reminds me again to say sorry for the delay in my 500 candy but I am off on holiday next week, so I am going shopping for my candy at the Hobby House...............cannot wait :)

This is a close up of Sam and Dylan Fishing Digital Image from Make it Crafty, this is one fabulous image and great to colour, took me a good couple of nights to finish.

Well another two days left at work, so will love you and leave you for the day.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
Deep Ocean - Happy Birthday
Digital Tuesday - We like to Party (Birthday Celebrations)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Cards for Men - Sports
