"Tommy Fishing" Fathers Day Card

I just got this adorable digi stamp from Fresh Brewed Shop Designs called, "Tommy Fishing" and I could hardly wait to color him up and make a card. This card is going to be for my husband for Father's Day! Shhh!
He is very supportive of my card making hobby and admires all of my cards, however, he doesn't read my blog! I colored "Tommy" to look like my husband when he was a young boy. His favorite childhood memories are of all the summers that he spent fishing! This wonderful stamp even looks like my husband did when he was young!
I used SU Garden Green cardstock. The dotted paper is also SU.
Then I paper pieced little Tommy's shirt with a fun orange K&Company paper and used it for a bright background paper.
The ribbon, buttons and bling are all from my stash of treasures!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges
