SOS238 - Fishing Vest card

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is called Bent Out Of Shape and we want to see shaped cards. This is not my forte, but here is what I came up with:
I used a template found here and added some extra touches - buttons, fishing fly (wannabees) made with feathers, hand drawn fish (since I didn't have any tiny fish stamps)
Challenges:

So funny how many of us say that shaped cards aren't our bag (mine either but I didn't say it). This card is darling! Perfect for the fisherman or fisherwoman in your life. Very clever!
