Birthday Fishes

Hello friends.  I hope you're enjoying your weekend.  A friend of our family has a birthday coming up and he's an avid fisherman.  I mean the man eats, talks, and sleeps fishing lol! 

So here's the card I made for our friend.  I just love this image ... I think his big eyeglasses are just too cute!  The image is from Pollycraft and it's called Maurice - Caught One.  I colored Maurice with my copics and colored pencils and used Glossy Accents on his eyeglasses.  I used some stickles on the fish, and added some buttons and twine.  My sentiment is computer-generated.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

This is such a perfect card for a fisherman. I love the look on his face. The glossy accents on his glasses are the perfect touch. I'm going to have to try to remember this image for my dad. His Bday is coming up in July.
