One for the men

Well today has been quite humid but at least it was better than the rain lol
well today I have a mens card to show you now I don't normally do men's cards as well they just dont get it like us ladies do (no offence to the male card makers) but quoting one of my boys "I would rather go buy one" lol hence my boys get 50p bought cards'

This chap is from Funky Kits Sugar Nellie and is called Gone fishing I will apoligise now cause I have just noticed I forgot to colour the flipping rod in lol but will do it. The image has been coloured with Copics,
The dies are Memory box banner and Mariannes fence dies
the buttons are a Martha Stewart Punch 
I used Magnolia papers
the sentiments are a free download from Cuddly Buddly a whole sheet full of these little sentiments specially to go on fence dies or posts
I also used scrimp and blue bakers twine with a bit of dark blue ribbon I knotted it rather that made a bow
I also added bakers twine to the buttons
To finish I added some white pearl drops with a wako pearl pen 
so there you go pretty simple but then I think mens cards normally are
