Good morning bloggers. 
It's Tuesday, so that means it's a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz.
This week we are on the riverbank or at sea with the topic of


This is a great theme for a men's card, it being the most popular participation sport in this country.

This little fisherman is from LOTV and was coloured using Copics as follows:-

Cap - C7,5,3
Jumper - B24.28,29
Wellies + Grass - YG61.63,67
Bank - E53,55,57,59
Float - R27,29
Rod - C0.03,5,7,10,E11,13
Sky - B000,00,12
Water - B12,14,18,00
Skin - E000,00,11,13,R20
Hair - E41,42,44,35,YR31

I've no idea where the papers are from, they've been in the stash so long!
I used the latest challenge at Seize the Sketch as the inspiration for the layout and I've kept the whole card quite simple, not too many embellishments.

I rotated the sketch so it was in landscape format and used twine and a button from the stash for the banner embellishment. The greeting is from a Personnel Impressions set on a banner shaped piece of white card.

I shall enter this card into the following challenges-
