Hubsters Birthday card

Hi my lovelies I'm back again I havnt had chance to craft so I thought I would show you 1 of hubsters birthday cards that I made. Now as a lot of you know my hubby loves fishing, sea fishing or course fishing which he only started doing about 6 months ago so his card had to have fishing on of some kind lol.
I've had this fab image for a bit & finally got to print it out & colour it up........
Yeah get me......quite clean & simple for me isnt it........actually it would of had embellies on but I've boxed them up while I do my craft room & cant remember where they are.........darn it!!!
Sketch I've used

I layered the bottom layer up onto foam away from the card & layered the image on foam as well so it has quite a bit of dimension...........I tried to get the pic of it but not very well lol.

The papers I hand stitched all the way around each one.........CAS & stitching....check me out lol.

Of course the fabulous image is from the talented Mo Manning & its called 'Fishing' of course lol.
It was of course coloured with Copics.

Yeah I forgot stitch the inside papers....oops my bad. Took photos before any writing or sentiment was done.
The papers are from My Crafty Heart & are called My Minds Eye 'Paris & Co' I LOVE this pad the colours are just gorgeous & its one of those pads you can use for male or female!!!
I've used Dar Brown card for matting & the ribbon & string are from my stash. The clouds I cut with my Whimsy die.

Well thats it from me I am trying to catch up with you all but I may be a bit slow tonight I have Payton-Lea staying overnight we picked her up this afternoon. 
I also want to give a big thank you to Heidy for the fabulous candy win, yayyyy I won the candy so I get to shop over Mo's.......problem now is choosing as she has way too many fab images!!!
Thank you sweetie soooooooo much. Heidy has Mo candy every month & she's also extremely talented so why not pop by her blog........believe you will be glad you did!!!!!!

Well tatty my lovelies & thank you all for stopping by, please grab a hug from me as you leave my sweetie mmwah xoxoxox
Challenges I'm Entering............. -  Free Choice, I chose sketch 42
