Birthday card for my fishing mad husband!!

A personalised birthday card for my supportive and very special husband. He absolutely loves fishing so this topper from Hunkydorys Gentleman's Journey pad is ideal. I have used gingham paper from Anna Marie to cover my 8x8in white card. I added a strip of brown card up the centre of the card. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with an oval die. I assembled my card using double sided tape and completed it with a fishing embellishment from my stash.
