Fishy Birthday Card

Good morning to you all
Today I would like to share with you a card that I made for Mike to give to Matt for his birthday.  It is so hard to keep coming up with new fishing themed cards for him with new images each year and also for father's day, when there are three of them in the family that fish.

So here is what I made

I went a little mono with some fabulous silhouettes 

A real easy recipe black card is the contrast and also used for the dies of the fish and I used white card, embossing the bottom layer but not the top.  The sentiment is from
Wild Rose Studio - Birthday Circles
and it sits on a Nellie Snellen circle die with a black contrast one behind.  

I would like to welcome my new followers, and thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges
CRAFT - Monochromatic
The Male Room - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Die Cuttin Divas - Anything Goes
Ladybug Crafts - Birthdays
Natalie and Amy - Celebrate Something
The cupboard Trilogy - Monochrome
hugs
Kate
