For the Birthday Boy!

Three of my five grandsons love to fish, so I used this first silhouette image from Our Daily Bread Designs to make a simple birthday card. I chose colors from this week's ColourQ:



Unfortunately, it's snowing again today so the lighting is poor and my aqua doesn't look true. I embossed that piece with a spellbinder's M-Bossibilities "Kick-in Rubber." I love the footprints for masculine cards!

Thank you for visiting! My next post is another masculine card with this color theme.
