Gone Fishin'

Hi Folks
Here I am with another challenge card, was in the mood to do a boys card and couldn't wait to ink this little stamp up! Love his flat cap! Went abit wild with my distressing inks and tools (for me) and I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out, will have to do more of this!
This one is for the CardsForMen challenge, their theme is 'paper piecing', which I've not done before so was abit wimpy and just did his cap! I'm also entering it into the CardPatterns challenge too. Right, I think it's time to do another card!
Take care and thanks for looking.

Oh, this is soooo sweet. I love the image and you've coloured him beautifully. I don't think you've gone OTT with the distressing, I think it's very effective. Good luck with the challenge.
