Fishing Birthday Card

I love the Victory paper line for masculine cards.  I am so glad that it was carried over into the Fall/Winter 2012 catalog.  My masculine birthday card stash is getting except to see more masculine cards coming soon!  My card is based on the sketch at The Sweet Stop this week.

Instead of the bow, I stamped Happy Birthday with Staz On ink onto the twill ribbon.
