Father's Day - Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Flourishes is having another Timeless Tuesday Challenge and this time it's for Father's Day.  You can check out the rules on their site by clicking the link above.  Well, even though my Dad doesn't fish I made a fishing card because I love the Flourishes set, What a Catch!  You will probably see this set used a lot for this challenge since it is new.
Lots of people have to travel to go fishing so I wanted to pair my image up with some travelish paper.  Even though it is Prima's Botanical paper, it looks like postcards.  If I travel somewhere fun I always send postcards back to family and friends.
For a rustic look I airbrushed the edges of the image and the sentiment.  I used lots of Nesties for style and textured brads to go along with the rustic look.  Finished size is 7 1/4 x 4 1/4.
