Men's card - fishing

So here's the card I made for my sister's boyfriend - he likes going fishing. I really wanted to find some little fishy charms or embellishments to finish this card off but two different craft shops were unsuccessful :( I would've ordered online but I need to send them this weekend so in a bit of a hurry - that'll teach me to be more organised!

I used some old paper that I'd been given backed on blue cardstock, nesties to cut the circles, a smirks sports stamp, some crafty ribbon back on navy cardstock and a homemade sentiment to finish it off.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz - Monochromatic
