Going Fishing?

I made this 8"x8" card for my husbands birthday using the fab Forever Friends retro collection.
He used to go fly fishing many moons ago and recently mentioned that he'd like to take it up again so I thought this image would be appropriate for him. Personally I think he would be more of an armchair fisherman these days ;)
I really did mix and match from all the packs in the collection for this one. The main image is a decoupage topper from a die-cut decoupage pack. I also cut out all of the extra flowers from the sheet to use as extra embellishments. The small sentiments and the stripey paper are from the Ultimate die cut pack. The checked paper is from the A5 paper pack. I thought that the check size on that particular sheet framed my decoupage topper perfectly. The scroll message is from the sentiments pack. I inked around all of the different layers using an orange Papermania mini dye pad just to define the edges a little more.

Now. Who wants to go fishing?

I have entered this card into the following challenge:
