It's your birthday!

Ok, maybe not YOUR birthday, but it's somebody's birthday....namely my nephew. He turns 14 on May 21 and he LOVES to fish! So I made him this card.
I followed the MOJO Monday sketch (for last week) however was too late, as today they have a new sketch. I hate when that happens!
The image is from Prairie Fairy Designs and is called Fisher Beary.

I made the sentiment on my computer & me & hubby have a 'bet ' on about whether or not "mackerel" is an actual fish. I looked it up on the internet dictionary & it identifies that word as a fish, yet hubby feels the need to argue! MEN! 
Anyone care to place a wager or two?!?!! lol 

I added some feather type material to his hat. You know how 'true fishermen' have these hooks in their hats....well, I did my best by adding the "feathers" which are actually portions of a ribbon I have.

Finally I added crystal effects to my fish in the bucket, because according to Google images, Mackerel fish are shimmery silver in appearance.
