Fly Fishing Birthday

 Hi Stampers,
My husbands had his 50th last week!  He also got his membership card for AARP!! lol  Anyway, for his birthday he got a fly fishing pole like he has been dreaming about for years!  He also got to take a camping trip down to the Keys with his brother to try it out.  So when it came to making a card I knew I wanted a fly fisherman...so I googled images and found this one and made a cut file and used my Pazzles to cut it out.  Then I started googling bonefish (which is what he was fishing for) and came up with this black and white picture of the Keys with the bonefilsh....PERFECT!!!  So I printed it out and colored with my Copics and the card came together quite nicely.  The frame was stamped with a Stampin' Up sea fan stamp.
When the kids were little and we were on vacation we would pass fly fishermans in the mountain creeks and Jim would always say one day that would be me....and he would say "Rock On, fly fisherman!!"  So I used my Rock On stamp from my Rock N Roll set...Again PERFECT!!!
I am so thrilled with the way this card came together and so was he!  I'm so glad that he had such a good birthday.

Hope your week Rocks too!!!
Jill
