Born to Fish

My husband needed a birthday card for a co worker and this is what I came up with. This guy is awesome! I saw a card done with him by Marlene and ordered him right away. He's an Aussie Santa stamp, lol! Love him! I tried to have him standing on sand and have a sun burn. I think I did pretty good. I've entered him into Papertake Weekly with trio tastic, Delightful Challenges show some green, Paperplay challenges embossing, CES Challenge inspired by a song (Andy Griffith theme song the fishin' hole)

Stamp: Make it Crafty Stamps Aussie Santa, Stampin Up Weathered sentiment computer generated
Paper: Stampin Up garden green, pumpkin pie, whisper white
Ink: ballet blue, classic/craft pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise, creamy caramel
Other: prisma markers, reflection brads, Stampin Up ticket punch and crystal effects
