Clearly Delightful Challenge #10 and Doodle Pantry new release!

It's October 5th and that means another Clearly Delightful Challenge - this time the challenge is to use a Doodle Pantry image and a ribbon - easy right? And as always - you'll get a set of digi stamps just for participating!
For my today's card I used a brand new Doodle Pantry digi called Bass Fish - wonderful image for all the fishing enthusiasts in your life. Don't forget to check out the other wonderful images released today!
The image is colored with a mic of Copics and Prisma pencils and embossed with clear EP. Then I brayered the background and stamped some leaves.
The background panel used to be a pop can - I embossed it and colored it with Adirondack alcohol ink. I thought metal could go well with the manly image and I quite like how it turned out. What do you think?

I'm also entering this card into these challenges:
The Crazy Challenge - recycle (pop can)
Stamps R Us - Nature
