Critter Challenge - It's your Birthday

It's time for a new challenge and sponsor at the Critter Challenge Blog.  This month's sponsor is Soft Pencil, the theme, create a child's b-day card, it can be boy or girl, toddler, teen, baby, etc.  I don't have a lot of little kids to create birthday cards for, so I opted to create sometime more for a teen boy. 

I used the Faux Dominos Technique from the June TJNL.  The Fish image is the Rockfish from Fred B Mullett (FBM_008),  stamped in Pumpkin Patch.  To create the fish hook, I simply cut part of a Swivel Clasp, and added it to my card with Glue Dots.

Details:
Stamps - Fred B. Mullett (Fish), River City Rubber Works (sentiment)
Card Stock - White, Black, Olive, Pumpkin
Ink - Black, Pumpkin Patch
Other - Basic Grey paper, Hemp, Swivel Clasp, Glue Dots, Corner Rounder, Dimensionals

Remember there are no vendor restrictions to play along, check out the Critter Challenge Blog for more details and to see what the other Designers created this week.
