Magnolia Edwin Waiting for Fish Happy Retirement Card

Good morning to you all.  Today is time for another challenge over at Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps Challenge Blog.  This time the challenge is 'ALL ABOUT BOYS'.  Therefore, basically in order to join us for the challenge, you basically need to just create boy-theme project.  I don't do boy-theme card often, making a boy-theme card is NOT a piece of cake to me although I love coloring any Edwin stamps, lol
 
For my card today, I picked 'Edwin Waiting for Fish' for my image which I bought a while ago from Magnolia-licious and decided to do a retirement card.  Besides this Edwin stamp, I used the pattern paper from Magnolia Paper Pack.  I also picked some Memory Box dies.  There are Party Lanterns and the Oceana Border dies.  In addition, I used a Tim Holtz Weathered Clock Die and tucked a "at the beach" My Mind's Eye chipboard  from my stash box.  In my stash box, I also found a package of Fishing by 'A Touch of Jolee's' embellishemnt stickers to add on too.
 
Here is my finished card.  I added some dew drops on the lantern too.
 
I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Inspire Me Fridays 97 - Anything Goes
My Sheri Crafts Challenge 104 - Time to Go Fishin
Come and Get It Challenge - Playing in the water
Eclectic Ellapu - Masculine
The Ribbon Girl - Anything Goes & Magnolia
Make It Monday 129 - Anything Goes
