Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 18: make it masculine

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 18: make it masculine, which is being sponsored by Sparkle n Sprinkle who kindly supplied the 'only fish saying' that I've used for my design card. Please click on the challenge link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and it would be lovely if you could join in with the challenge.

I printed out the digi and filled in the fish with stickles to match the Creative Expressions 3D glittered fish stickers that I added to the card. The background was created with a Sheena Douglass embossing folder ran through the eBosser and brushed with peacock feathers distress ink, as were the edges of the image card. I used a piece of stitched ribbon to join two pieces of embossed card together, mounting everything on to a bright blue card blank.
