Been fishing?

I am so proud of this very special card for my father in law's 70th birthday! He loves fishing, so that was the theme for the card and cake. I found some great paper in my stock for the background.

I used some 3d shaker foam to add some dimension to the card and used Glossy Accents for the glasses to make them look like glass.

My husband and I also created this huge cake for his surprise birthday party down in Bognor. The cake went down a treat!

Paper - K & Co
Embellishments - Hook and feathers from google images then coloured with ProMarkers to match
Sentiment - Made by me
Image - Dr Digi Anglin' Andy coloured with ProMarkers
