Hooked on Fishing

Today is Duane's sister Trudy's birthday. And boy does she love to fish! Even more than Duane. I bought this stamp set a few years back becuase it works perfect for so many people in our families who love fishing!

This card turned out just the way I wanted it to. Originally I was going to sew on the card instead of use ribbon, but found I didn't have any brown thread. Ribbon works well in the space! The Mellow moss layer is dry embossed through my Big Shot which gives great dimension.

Here is a close up of the card. You can sorta see the dots on the Moss layer. Also - what do you think of the clip next to the fly? Kinda like a fish hook, right? (Remember they are on sale through Sunday if you want to get any.) Came together quite nicely, and hope she likes it.

Happy Birthday Trudy!
