Fishin' you a 'Happy Father's Day'

Hi again

Todays effort is yet another man's card.  The stamped image is from a Papermania set, which considering they're so cheap, seem to stamp really well, and are far more effective once coloured than I thought they were going to be.  The papers, are again from the Happy Father's Day set that I used the other day.  I love these papers and the colours are so masculine.  The star and mat that the fisherman is mounted on, are both cut with nesties.  The corners are die cuts, but I can't remember whose, sorry!!  I wanted to add a little colour to the mat, so decided to do some stitching with a piece of string that I dyed with my copics to match the colour scheme.  I was a bit nervous about doing this, as the string was so thick I had to pre-punch the holes, and was worried in case I didn't get it straight, but it turned out OK, and I'm quite pleased with the effect.  Both sentiments were computer generated.  Hope you have time to leave me a comment.
