Happy Birthday Brother

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

June is quickly going to become history and July will be upon us. We will be celebrating the 4th of July this weekend. 
Our local community is going to have fireworks Friday evening. Not sure why they moved it up this year. But we will be there along with a whole lot of other people enjoying a beautiful display in the night sky. 

Now onto my card for today. This masculine card is for my brother who is an avid trout fisherman. He has a lake near his home and would go every morning and catch the limit for the day. He even shared with my hubby and I. They were already scaled, debone and filleted and ready for a quick pan fry. So delicious and healthy.

I created my outdoor fishing scene using dies from CottageCutz. Used the Pond w/Cattails & Lily Pad die, the Fishing Pole & Boat and the Fishing Gear die. 

I was inspired by this card I saw on Pinterest. I changed it up by using different colors and dies from CottageCutz, eliminated the sun, clouds and grass and added fishing boots and a bobber.

My background is bermuda bay designer paper from the "oh so ombre" collection from Stampin' Up.

Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
