Stamping Dragon Card Challenge- One For Dad

Well I'm back to show off my card for this last week's challenge over at Stamping with the Dragon. So my card is just in time for Father's Day which happens to be the challenge - One For Father. So I started off using Chocolate Chip for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used Basic Grey collection called 'Granola' for the rest. I added 3 layers offsetting the second and third layer. With the fourth layer I decided to run it thru a Sizzix embossing folder called 'Animal Prints' to give the illusion of water. I then took out my Pan Pastels to add some highlights on the embossed raised areas using Phthalo Blue and Phthalo Green. 
I used the image called 'Rupert Goes Fishing Part 2' and you can find the image here in the store; http://dragonslairdesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=403_415&products_id=1087
I colored him using Prismacolor pencils and added some glitter on his vest, hat and the water using Sparkle N Sprinkle exclusive glitter. I then stamp some fishing hooks from a retired Stampin'Up stamp set and added some more glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle. I also stamped a sentiment called 'Special Gifts - Father by Hero Arts and punched it out using a scallop punch. I then added a flower and a sentiment from the same sticker collection along with some brown crochet lace and blue glitter ribbon to tie it in with the water.
