Masculine Birthday Card with Fish

Hi Dreamers!
I have been so busy I forgot to post the birthday card I made for my  brother.  His party had a fish theme, so  of course I had to make a card with fish!  I also decorated the envelope.  Take a look.

The fish and tag are all one stamp- Fish Scene Tag.  The grasses on the card base are another stamp-Dried Plant.  They are both from the Stampin' Place.   The images are stamped with brown dye ink and colored with Copic Markers.

 I stamped the fish again on pale yellow CS with brown ink and colored with Copics---and popped them up with dimensional adhesive.

Before adding the Fish Tag Scene to the card base, I stamped the Dried Plant on the edges of the card base.


On the inside, I repeated the stamping of the fish and Dried Plant.  My brother loves the show, "Leave It To Beaver".  So, this sentiment from Stampin' Up is just perfect for his birthday card.

Some really fun Challenges for my Brother's fishy Birthday Card:
Penny's Challenge: animals
Aud Sentiments: birthday
Dutch Dare: sports--fishing is a sport, right??!
Moving along with the Times: one for the boys
Sweet Stampin: creat a scene

Well, that is all for today.  I still have lots of work to do in the garden.  The plants are really starting to grow now.  I hope you are having a great weekend!  Love ya.
