The one that got away

This week's Less Is More Challenge is 'How Charming' - use a charm on your card - well, I have a ton of charms, but usually fling them onto really busy cards as a finishing touch. However, one particular charm was begging to be caught used:
Have to smile, imagine if the fisherman did catch a whopper like that? :) We have a great neighbour who often knocks on the door bearing fresh fish from his favourite pastime - so this is another little card that might come in handy with a bottle of wine for him soon.
I used:

- 6" x 6" white square card stock

- plain dark green card behind the image

- the topper is from an Anita's 'Fishing' set - a great set for keen fishermen, although the images are all the same, just different sizes and shapes

- charm and bakers twine from my goodies store

- sentiment by LOTV, stamped in Pearlescent Ivy

And, a lot easier than last week's LIM doodling challenge :)

It was a much nicer challenge than doodling wasn't it! I love your fishing card Di - such a perfect use of the brilliant charm. My Dad was a fisherman and would have loved it.
