'Fishers of Men' congrats card.

I've been promising the gals in my craft group that I would post the card I made for our Pastor for his 25th anniversary as an ordained minister, since I had to give it to him before I showed it to anyone (that's what I get for putting it off until the last minute).
Our wonderful Pastor is a great 'fisherman', in more than one way. So I knew my card had to have a 'fishing' theme that reflected not only his ministry, but his love of actually fishing for fish! We are so thankful that he decided to make a career change 25 years ago and chose to 'follow Jesus'.

I used the CTMH 'Perfect Day' Stamp set and stamped lighthouse image and the birds on the outside. I also used the water image from CTMH 'Summer Breeze' set.  I stamped it all in Momento Rich Cocoa and used Copic Markers to colorthe lighthouse and water. I then masked the lighthouse and used various colors of Pebbles chalks to color in the sky, then stamped the birds and the sentiment. I added some waterfall Stickles to the water.

On the inside of the card I stamped the boat and fence image from the Perfect Day set gently added some color with the chalks. I really like how this turned out. It would also make a very nice masculine birthday card or a sympathy card. 
Please leave a comment-I love to hear from you.
