Fish Tremble

My son has his Golden Birthday coming up, but I wanted to get the card done so I can mail his present out to him.  He loves to fish so I made this criss cross card for him using a Bugaboo image Boy Fishing Digi stamp along with a sentiment from TLC, Create.  I dry embossed one flap of the card and put Sakura jelly glitter pen on the fishing line and the firefly trails.  My son is picky and doesn't like to get a standard card, so I thought I would give him a card design that I had not made for him before.

Patterned Paper:  Fancy Pants
Cardstock:  Bazzil; Recollections
Stamp:  Bugaboo - Boy Fishing Digi Stamp (see above for direct link)
Sentiment:  TLC, Create - Fish Tremble

That's so funny that your son is picky about cards - he will be suitably impressed with this one! The little fishing boy is so cute! Hope you're enjoying your weekend, Lisa Lynn!

He's going to LOVE it, love the TLC sentiment, perfect for this card.
I've actually caught up, but couldn't comment on each - sorry. I have a Gniece who is 4'11" too, I hope the dress is fitting good now and hope you're getting used to your new job and not finding it too stressful.
Have a restful Sunday, keep your fingers crossed it won't be so long again that I visit. LOL
