"Fishing" you a Happy Father's Day!

I wasn't sure what to put on a Father's Day card for my dad.  Then the challenge at Cardztv gave me an idea.  The challenge there is to make a Father's Day card with a beach theme.  Now, my dad isn't exactly a beach goer.  However, he is a fisherman--in fact, he told me to bring a cooler when I visit for Father's Day because he's going to send me home with some fish he caught!  So, here is my fishy Father's Day card:

The fish is from Create a Critter.  The tag he is on and the tag inside the card are from Accent Essentials. The turquoise card base was run through the Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder.  The white tag the fish is on was run through the Swiss Dots folder.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Cardztv--Father's Day with a beach theme
