Fishing Anyone?

When I ordered this digi image from Pattie's Creations Digital Stamps,  I knew I'd be using it for my brother-in-law's birthday card.   I added some dry embossing to the green panel and heat embossed the sentiment.  The image is colored with pencils, fussy cut.  The fishing creel and boots and glued to the CS, while the fish is raised with some foam tape.  I used an ultra fine brown marker for the faux stitching.  Of course I used today's Mojo Monday 306 Sketch:
and will be entering the card in the Mojo Monday Challenge.
