Birthday Card For A Fisherman, or in this case, a Fisherboy

I  am making up some birthday cards for a Thank you gift. Three boy, and three girl themed cards
 I will show the rest of these cards over the next couple of weeks. Here is the first.

The tied fly hook is an image I picked up at the thrift shop. I cut it out with a Lawn Fawn stitched square die and matted with a snippet of Bazzill heavy weight card, cut with the larger stitched die. I pop dotted the image off the mat for some depth to the card.

I covered the white card base with some snippets of DP from my stash.  The party hat DP is a snippet of Crate Paper, Party Day. The bottom piece looks like cork strips and was the perfect colour to go with the snippet of birthday party hats. I think it is another Crate Paper selection...this time, Party Time.

The HAPPY banner was left over from a set of cards shown in a previous post. I pop dotted it forward too. The BIRTHDAY word sentiment  was left over from that same set of cards. It is stamped on a Stampin' Up  word punch.

My NBUS item today is the tied fly image.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
