Card Details: I grew up around a lake environment and fishing was a part of  life for my brothers and sometimes (not often) me. I don't think I ever graduated from the 'fishin pole' but my brother's did, especially my younger one, so Laurie's stamp set  brought back a lot of memories.... I however did not eat fish for ten years after I left home having eaten so  much of it growing up  -lol.

Stamp & Sentiment: Doodle Pantry  digital stamps from the Reel 'em In stamp set (May5th release); background stamp from All Night Media
Markers: Prismacolors

Punch: Martha Stewart 'Christmas Branches' and Stampin Up's photo corners
Other: eyelets

Techniques: handle on the reel was made dimensional, dry wall mesh tape was used on both  photo corner and small  black rectangle,  red background was stamped to give it a weathered look

Challenges Entered:
Pollycraft Monday Challenge #91: Anything Goes
Drunken Stampers Challenge #65: Say it Like It Is - my saying is a play on words 'Reel Men Fish'  - I thought it was a 'say it like is' type of sentiment
Crazy Challenge #65: Male Card
Tip Top Tuesday #32: Open Challenge
Stamps R Us: For the Men in our Lives
Sweet Stamps challenge 13: Olden days or Vintage - this is  card using an old style fishing reel - so it does meet the olden days requirement and I guess you could call it vintage
Cards for Men challenge #9: hope my cards counts, it has a round fishing reel and I added the 6 round eyelets  to give it some more.
