Mojo Monday #278 - Fisherman Stamp

It's another week of weird weather, so I have been holding off taking pictures and posting cards.  We hit the high 50's yesterday with rain.  Today it has been snowing all day with below zero temps for tonight.  With the snow coming down and everything white again I thought it might be bright enough to take some pics.  My card for today is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #278.  It's all about circles and squares this week.  I used a new stamp I picked up last week.  One of my favorite stores was having a 50% sale on all of the Whipper Snapper Design stamps, so that they could bring in the new spring line.  So how could I pass that up.  Here were the two sketches you could pick from.

Here is my card...

I find it hard to make male cards.  Partly because most of my stamps and papers lend themselves more to the feminine side.  I opted to use the Die-namics chevron die to make points and circles for the sentiment instead of scallops to give it a more masculine feel.  I stamped another hat to accent my sentiment.  As a kid we would fish on the river that went through the small town I grew up in.  We would put our catch on a stringer.  I tried to duplicate that with the fish hanging off the strings.  I also added Glossy Accents to all the fish to give them a little something.  The sentiment was something I just typed up on my computer.  After I made the card I thought I should have used "Birthday Fishes".  Oh well, that can be another card.
