The Family Fisherman has a Birthday!

My son-in-law loves to fish.  I came across a die from Cottage Cutz that I thought would be really fun to use, depicting a fishing creel and fish.  Now, I just had to find the right papers and other embellishments to use with it. The hunt was on!  

I found the "Fisherman's Rules" online, and I thought it would be perfect to throw a little humor in.  My daughter doesn't like Rule No. 1, because this is already one of Don's own personal rules, and he's sure to mention it with, "See, it's even part of fishing rules!"  I think it would be fair to say that it's a difficult rule for my daughter to meet on a consistently regular basis. . .LOL!  Here's the card I came up with, and I hope Don likes it!

Recipe:  Darice "Kraft" cs, BoBunny Double Dot "Sea Foam," SU "Choc. Chip" cs, Pattern (stash-unknown), DCWV Cork, Recollections "Photo Burlap," Simple Stories "Take a Hike" ticket (size adjustment/ color changed). Dies:  Cottage Cutz "Fishing Basket w/Fish," Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles, Rectangles SM. From stash: Wood leaf button, mottled brown, burlap trim. May Arts twine. Scotch 3D foam. (Note: "Rules" fish is 3-D by fussy cutting second fish and popping onto original.  Burlap trim length trimmed/ frayed: glue added and dried to keep from fraying further).
