Taken my cakes and gone Fishing!

Made this card for my brother's birthday (Tomorrow).
I've loved this stamp from the moment I saw it on one of Jennifer's cards.
It's called 'Tiers of Treats' by Stampendous.
I'm making good use of that navy linen card aren't I? LOL
The SU paper goes a treat.
Do you think I've distressed it a little TOO much?
It looks like it''s been set fire to!!
Oh well. It's different. his name is Bill, hence the 'B'.
The 'B' charm is from a PM or Dovecraft set.
(Can't remember which). Had 'em years.
The sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp .
I also made this one for Mum to give him.
I was Dying for an excuse to use this stamped image I also got from our visit to Issy.
It's called 'The Art Of Casting' and it's from Stamps Happen.
I was trawling round Ebay and chanced upon this stamp.
I immediately bought it. I love it.
The shop I got it off, also has a blog called 'Simon Says Stamp'.
The metal tags are another set from either PM or Dovecraft.
(I really MUST get a memory)!!
The DP is from a 12x12 set by Dovecraft called 'Masculine'.
(I looked at the cover sheet). LOL

Thanks for stopping by! :0)
