Card for a Chap - aka mistakes made in life

Today's card uses a scene that I stamped and Distress Inked a long time ago.  I've added some perle thread, kraft card, embossing to make it into a masculine card, I never have enough of these.  The sentiment was a free folder with a magazine, sorry don't know who makes the netting folder. The stamps are Stampscapes, the only two I own.

Mistakes?   1. Bought to make cards for my now-ex to give to his fly fishing friends!
                   2. Bought a LH fisherman and a RH bank - what ever is he doing casting towards the bank?!

Which was the bigger mistake I wonder...!

I'm entering my card for a few challenges:
Tok Bobok - masculine
Cards und More - clean and simple
Cuttlebuggle - anything embossed
Crafty Cardmaking - dry embossing
Corrosive Challenge - let's hear it for the boys
Speedy Fox & Friends - use a silhouette figure
Sweet Stampin' - embossing (second entry)
That's Crafty - man's world

  14. Anne your fabulous sense of humour has put a much needed smile on my face, thank you. I would plump for number 1 as the biggest mistake, but hey we all make them!

    Fabulous card, even with the confused fisherman on it!
