Have A Fishy Birthday

Happy Friday Bloggers
and its another challenge at Stamping With The Dragon today.
Here's my creation for this weeks challenge

This cute fellow is called 'Rupert Goes Fishing Take 1' and he can be found in the Stamping Dragon Designs Store.
I made this card for my cousin who was 18 on Tuesday and is fishing mad. Rupert is coloured with pro markers and mounted using foam pads. The backing paper is from my stash, sorry I don't know what the make is and I used the same paper turned on its side and matted onto dark blue card for the numbers to hang from. I cut the numbers free hand from the same dark blue card, edged them with a green metallic marker and hung them from twine so they swung about as if on the end of a fishing line. I added 3 buttons, 2 brown and one green, to add a final bit of detail.
I have been told that my cousin loved this card and the one I made for my mum to give to him, also fishing themed (see my previous post) and has said he is going to keep them.

I hope you will come along and join our challenge this week and for a bit more inspiration visit the Stamping Dragon Challenge Blog to see the wonderful creations from the other DT members.
