Leaving card for John

It's been a dark, damp day today, perfect for crafting :) Good job, as I've a load of cards I need to get made this weekend!  This one is for a friend that I've worked with for over 20 years but we've had some funding cuts so he's taking early retirement ... I reckon his wife will need a photo of him as he'll be out fishing 24/7!

My image is Dad's Catch from High Hopes.  Bought these DPs yesterday in a moment of weakness - from Forever Friends ... love it!  Letters popped up on dimensionals - I added in the faux stitching as they were a bit lost in my DP.
