Creative Card Crew challenge 8 - Sketch It

Over at the Creative Card Crew there's a fab sketch to follow, so this is the card I've made. It's my son Ryan's 15th birthday on Saturday and he loves fishing to I thought this would suit him. I've coloured the image using Copics, for the sky I used pastel shimmer chalks, I also added some glossy accents to the drops of water.
The papers are Basic Grey "archaic", cuttlebug embossing folder, sentiment is computer generated cut out using my new SU oval punch, some tulle to emulate the fishing net and his catch...lol!!!
Thanks for popping by my lil oasis, luv 'n' hugs
