Fisherman Ian - A Birthday card

Hi there!
Phew, well summer certainly seems to have arrived - it's incredibly hot and humid today and my boys are soooooo happy it's the last day of school!!!
I needed to make a fishing themed birthday card for a friend and I had this cute Greeting Farm stamped image of Fishing Ian - he's just too adorable!! The card is pretty plain and simple - always hard to 'fluff' guy cards up, lol!!! I coloured the image using my copics and I found these cute fishing embellishments in my stash. Some twine behind the 'Gone Fishin' ' sign adds some final detail.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all get to enjoy this glorious day!
Hugs,

Your card is so adorable. I love this image and how you have layed it all out! It is hard to embellish a masculine card up but I think you have done an awesome job!

Just an absolutely perfect guy card. One of my co-workers is an avid fisherman and turns 50 at the end of the July. I was thinking of using Fisherman Ian on his card too! I have a few of him stamped from a stamping day with a couple of friends a few weeks ago.
