Very simple and quick birthday card for my husband

This week I am on "vacation" with the kids and hubby is back home :(.  It seemed fine when I first agreed to it but I am not sure how much longer I will stay on vacation, turns out I miss him.  We are pretty much just hanging our the place where we are staying and I have a nice big room.  So I brought a few crafting things and I have still been doing some simple simple stuff.  So, today I made this quick birthday card to send to my husband for his birthday this week.  He loves fishing so it was perfect.

I cut the pole 5 or 6 times before I actually found a card stock that would work without tearing at that size, and it was Core'dinations of course! ;)

Most of the other card stock on here is my other favorite, Bazzill.

The fish and pole are from Camp Out and the water is from Life is a Beach.  The sentiment and tag are from Base Camp.

I am entering it into the following challenges:

Birthday anything goes
