Happy 50th Birthday Fishes Ricky

Well since I live for challenges in the morning and the WTC was not loaded yet I went over to the Dirty Dare Challenges and played there. Also because I am the Queen of Challenge Combo's I grouped 4 of these together. I began with Jody's IT'S ALL ABOUT THE RIBBON presented on Monday. Next was Michelle's Masculinity and Julie"s Simple White Single Layer presented on Tuesday. Then I found Jenn's INSPIRATIONAL CAKE presented on Wednesday. Now before you start thinking "what kinda nut is this to come up with a Bass when looking at a beautiful cake?" I found my inspiration in that gorgeous green ribbon which also is Jody's challenge because the 1st thing I saw was the ribbon and I built from there. I went upstairs and found my ribbon then decided since my dh has a close cousin that we fish with when we can having his 50th BD surprise party Saturday(shhh it's a secret) and I needed a card anyway it just all sorta fell together. ((((clap))). Yeh!. I cut an oval from my Fiskars oval shapes and used my chaulks to color the inside of the oval and the Bass image. I omitted the "belated" from the sentiment to allow room to write 50th. Hope you like it and him too.
