Best Fishes for a Happy Birthday

Happy Monday!  

Please join me today in wishing Mr. Frank a Happy 91st birthday!  YIPPEE!!!

He's one busy fellow but loves to find a quiet spot for a good book or a fishing pole with no bait!

So for his birthday, I've made his card using Cute As A Button, 'I Will Make You Fishers of Men' digital stamp set. I also used Art Impressions 'Reel Great Guys' for the bucket of fish.

 After sized to fit an 4 x 6 card base, I printed the image on Neenah 110# card stock.  I stamped the bucket of fish on a scrap piece of Neenah.   All of the images are colored with Copic markers.

When complete, I fussy cut the bucket of fish out and trimmed the larger image close to the edges on the side. The card base is covered with a coordinating blue. Next, I secured the image to the card base and then added a strip at the top and bottom of red micro washi tape.  All done and ready to be hand delivered shortly. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
