DYSU #34 - Masculine

This week, I decided to make a birthday card for my father-in-law.  The image I used is called, "The Big One", from Stitchy Bear...both my father and father-in-law are big-time fishermen but, since it reminds me a bit of my FIL and my dad looks more like Jackie Chan than Walter Matthau, lol...I thought it seemed fitting to use it for my FIL.  The sentiments are from, "What a Catch", by Flourishes.  I added burlap and wooden buttons to enhance the rugged feel of the card and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.  

Here it is:
