A Fisherman's Tale

It's my BIL's birthday today......his hobby is fishing........not my idea of fun........sitting in the rain for hours at a time.........but each to his own........he also has a tendancy to exaggerate.......the typical 'fisherman's tale'.......but he has provided some good barbeque grub from this hobby........so a card tailor made for him.
The image and papers are all from the Clare Curd range......the sentiments Daisy and Dandelion........stamped some fish on the background paper.......and also cut some out from a fishy sheet I found and added with foam pads.
Creative Card Crew want a birthday card.........and Fab'n'Funky want a neglected stamp [which this one certainly is].

Brilliant card Jacky, the papers you have used are just perfect for a fishy tale lol, he will love it.
Suppose the idea of sitting making cards and layouts to him would seem terrible lol.

My dad's a fisherman, and every year I look for a different fishing image, I have the same one as you Jacky but not used it yet, wasn't too sure about it, but now i've seen your fabulous card with it, it might be the next one. Love your papers too Jacky, nice and masculine.
Happy crafting

Perfect and I love the journalling about it being called 'fishing' not 'catching'!
