Fishing for fun

Here's a card for one of the anglers in my life. It features an image from From the Heart and also the sketch for From the Heart's current sketch challenge. For the element that called for three rectangles, I used one of my favorite tricks -- paint swatches!
The image is colored in pencils, with just a touch of Stickles on the fish, because they do sparkle. Looking at this card, I realize I should have used an Orvis knot or something fishing-related on the baker's twine. Oh well...

This card is for these challenges:
Sketch140I Heart Sketches #140
Crafty Ribbons -- something that leaps (fish)
The Paper Shelter #237-- animals
