My Heart Belongs to Daddy...

I made it! I've finished my second creation for Anonyme Timeglass at Anonyme Scrappere :D
Happy, happy - 2 finished, 2 to go!

Starting on this card I meant I had a really good idea, almost a perfect plan; I'd make the card for my fathers birthday (in 2 months time, but I had the inspiration for it now...), I'd use papers from Pions "For Father"-collection, I'd try to use elements that would reflect things I know he likes. It would have to be manly and elegant, and I would use a heartshape for it.
Many, many times while making it I struggled, I have to admit.
I really had to search for the Sudokupaper I knew I had somewhere (took some time, but I found it!) What I didn't find was my tiny heartshaped punches. Having searched for them for about half an hour I remember that Hedda last night asked to bring them to school today, in case they should make mothersdaycards (arts and crafts at Friday - she loves it).
Well, I found other solutions (pearls and charms, and though it's a males card I think the flowers looks nice on it - men deserves flowers too, I think.)
Having been a fisherman all of his life, I knew i had to use fish on the card, Kaisercraft has a lovely pad called Hunt & Gather, where I found a paper full of fish and cut out a few to use on this one.
So, now I won't write more, here come the pictures of the card, laying flat, opened and a close-up at last:




My fathers birthdaycard will go into these challenges:
