Yes, another man in the family who loves to fish!! so another 'fishy' card
The centre panel was created using an embossed and painted fish image, which is one of my oldest stamps, and used multiple times. You may recognize it as it has often featured on my cards.
I used Twinkling H2O's, to paint it, but it doesn't show here, fussy cut it out and adhered it to dark blue card. I then covered it with blue tissue paper that had come around some stamps, and I had kept it to up-cycle. The shiny bling is part of the paper! Of course I had to save it...
The panel was framed with papers, die cut with a stitched wavy edging. - The top paper has some pale clouds on it, and I heat embossed in copper part of the the sentiment (a magazine freebie)
and used a 'grass like' paper for the bottom third, where I embossed the second part of the sentiment.
The twine was one ply of some heavy string, that I separated out and wound around the panels.
The inside was decorated with some more of the 'grass' paper.
