Great Day to Fish

 Today is our son's birthday so it was time to make another guy card.  I struggle with those sometimes but as soon as I saw this Fishing digi at QKR Stampede, I knew I had to have it.  I just discovered this digi company not so long ago and I really like them so will be back for more.  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Great Day to Fish digi sentiment set and the papers are from Basic Grey's Capella collection.  The screw brads are from my stash and I'd love to get more of them but haven't the faintest idea who makes them or where I bought them.
Challenges:
QKR Stampede - Anything Goes
Basic Grey - Your Favorite Thing (mine is Stickles, Stickles, Stickles!  Not too much on here but they are on the fish.
My Time to Craft - Men Only
Card Making Mamas - Birthday
Crafts4Eternity - Teddy Bear Picnic
Stampin for the Weekend - Distressing
