Card Making: Gone Fishing!

I had to make a card for a male friend of mine who enjoys outdoor activities, so I came up with a fishing theme.
First I made the backround with copic markers and then colored the boy drawing on a seperate paper (Gina K's pure luxury white cardstock).
Then I added the tree (I used scallop circle punch and a cuttlebug embossing folder, then I added red on the "apples".
I adhered the boy and the tree on the backround and then I cut by hand the grass stripe and added it on the card.
Last step was to adhere the fishing rod (I cut it from plain chipboard and then colored it brown).
I used green cardstock to make the frame, I wanted it to be like a 3-dimensional frame so I gave depth to it by adhering the card not directly under the frame but on double foam pads and then folded over the cardstock so that the foam pads were not visible.
Finally I drew and adhered the fish, I put Ranger's "Glossy Accents" on top to give them a little shine (I had an accident though with the pink fish) and added the title (I drew lines with blue and green copic on green cardstock and then used the Cutlebug's "Baby Face" alphabet.

I had lots of  fun making this card, I hope my friend wiil like it!
