Happy Birthday Grandpa Taylor!

My grandpa recently celebrated his birthday and as soon as I started working on his card, I knew exactly what Greeting Farm digi image I wanted to use.  My grandpa has always enjoyed fishing and when he talks about sitting on the bank drowning warms, you can see him almost imagine he was there at that very moment.


I used a brick red cardstock and topped it with a DCWV plaid paper.
I colored this cute guy using copics and at youspica pens (my favorite).
When I was done coloring him, I used my scalloped spellbinder to cut it out.
I then used a taupe chalk ink for the edges which I then went over with a chocolate brown on the edges.
I took some tan and chocolate jute to make a rustic bow.
The sentiment is from... you guessed it... Jaded Blossom.
I stamped the image on the curly label die (cut in half)
I chalked the die with brown and added it to the card with a pop dot.

This turned out to be one of my favorite cards recently.   I sure hope you like it.
