Happy Birthday to my big Brother. Have a fabulous day Dave, I know your lovely wife will spoil you.

My brother loves fishing, so I do try to make cards inspired by that. This is a simple card, multi layers making use of the designer paper theme. I embossed Sizzlet buttons with clear embossing powder then laced them with thin floss-like twine to make it look like fishing line. The Birthday Wishes is embossed with a hunter green embossing powder.

Supplies: Cream and green cardstock, Designer Paper-Sugar Tree, Stamp-it Birthday Wishes, Sizzlits-buttons, misc floss, clear embossing powder.

On another note, Thank you to Sarah Forhan, my Mojo card from this week has been posted to the Bowdabra Facebook page due to my cute little bow. I am feeling pretty happy about that. Check out the Bowdabra blog for some great ideas.

Thank you very much to Debbie - http://debbiesdashofthisandthat.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-blogger-award.html for the blog award. This award is going to take me a little work so I will try to Post about that this weekend.
