Fly Fishing Scene Birthday- Jewelry Color Inspiration #37

Here is Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration #37 inspiration piece. It is a cuff made from Japanese seed beads. The colors this week are Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel and Whisper White.

My husband's birthday was yesterday and I needed to make him a card, he is a fly fisherman, and I thought theses colors would probably work for that theme. So I pulled out one of my Fly Fishing stamp sets called Fly Fishing and made a card.

Here is what I cam up with. I think the colors worked very well with this scene. I stamped the image in Black Staz On onto water color paper and then water colored it using the Aqua Painter. I added the "Happy Birthday" stamp from Bitty Birthday, because it fit!
Just the other day my husband said he likes how stitching looks on cards, so I thought I would add some stitching to his card. I started off by doing something else than what you see here, but my sewing machine decided it didn't want to work for me, so I had to switch things up a bit, but I think it worked out ok.

Here is a close up of the scene. You can see all of the colors in this picture.

Thanks for looking and have a great Memorial Day weekend!
