Retro Fishing Birthday

I made this birthday card for one of my brothers - he loves fishing and camping!  This retro digi image was a freebie from The Graphics Fairy, and the sentiment was a freebie from Rockin' Digis by Jackie Rockwell - thank you both!  Here are the other supplies I used:

  • Cardstock and DP:  Recollections
  • Circle Punch:  Marvy Uchida
  • Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug - Script


    I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
