CD Sunday Challenge - The Natural World

Fancied having a go at a masculine card this week and as fishing is very big in this neck of the woods - what better than a trout (or is it a salmon?).
I have used Jayne Netley Mahew Part 2 CD for both the image and the wonderful backing paper. This is the first time I have used buttons on a card (they are recycled from one of John's old shirts!) and have threaded them with linen twine and mounted them over a pheasant feather.
I do hope you like it and thanks for visiting. Please feel free to leave a comment - I do take on board what you say.Posted by Picasa
