Gone Fishin'

A card for a  fisherman today, to celebrate a 65th birthday.
 The papers are from a My Mind's Eye pad called All Spice, to which I added kraft card and some ginger coloured pearl card.  I inked the edges with Ground Espresso Distress Ink for definition.
I used Sue Wilson dies to cut the fish tail banners and Spellbinders dies to cut the circle and scalloped circle shapes.
The fishing topper is a small decoupage piece, made from a very old Margaret Sherry decoupage sheet that has been in my stash since the dawn of time.  The sentiment and numerals were stamped with Personal Impressions stamps from two different sets.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Inkspirational - #115 - Patterned Paper / Stamp on Patterned Paper
Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday Goes
Come and Get It - Punches and Dies
Glitter 'n' Sparkle - #201 - Anything Goes
