Fishin' You A Great Day!

I am entering this card into 3 challenges this week!  The first is a sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, the second is a recipe challenge at Cards For Men, and the third is from Stampin' Royalty where the challenge is to "Mark it Up!".  So here is the sketch I was following:

Here is my take on the sketch.  The image is "Curtis" from Kraftin' Kimmie.  The recipe called for 1 image, 2 designer papers and 3 embellishments.  The paper is from Stampin' Up, and my 3 embellishments are the buttons.  For the "Mark It Up" part I coloured Curtis with some SU markers and MS crayons.  For fun I added the fishing pole I found in my box of assorted stickers and embellisments.  I punched a hole through the sentiment and attached the hook to it.  I used dimensionals to adhere the sentiment.  I think it's a fun card!!
