Let's Go Fishing for Birthday Wishes

Hello Again!
I have another card. This time I created a birthday card. One of the clerks at school asked if I could make her father a card for his 80th birthday and my first response was sure! Then I asked what does he like. She stated fishing, so I was lucky to find this paper in my stack and then the rest fell into place.
 The card base is kraft paper which was cut from the Wild Card cartridge at 4 1/2".
The frame was cut from the same cartridge (p. 66).
The pair of fish fits perfectly inside the frame.
I added gold gems for some sparkle.
Inside the card is a cream colored liner, the marsh, and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment.
I left some of the grass shoots unglued to add dimension. 
The sentiment is cut from kraft paper.
