A very late birthday card

I finally finished up my grandson's birthday card and gave it to him the end of June.  His birthday was April 5 while his mom and I were still in Florida.  Having Mom come home a few days after his birthday was the best present he could have received.  The check in Grandma's card wasn't too bad either!!

This was my first attempt at a twisted easel card.  I'm not sure that I like that technique.  I'll have to try a couple more.  For this card I used the Fishing Shack building, an older Edwin Fishing and the Bridge Deck stamps.  Copics I used were -  Building: E40, 42, 43, 44, 47, 17, G28, 05, 94, 99,  YG97, 63, B16, 21, 24, 26, 000, R81, 24, Y08.   Edwin was colored using the following: E13, 47, 44, 43, 81, 77, 71, 70, G05, 09, 07, 03, R27,Y28, 26, 21, B99, 97, 95, 91. 

Here's a side view so you can see the "twist" in the easel.

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you can sit a spell and relax watching Edwin fishing!

First attempt - wowzer. I have not tried one yet. This is really neat. The simplicity makes it - cause it really looks looks like he is on a fishing pier fishing in water. Wonderful job Kathy!
