Fishing for compliments

The Wednesday Stamper challenge for this week is fish. I've been waiting for an opportunity to use this image from Bill Blanton's site for a while now. The lady looks incredibly pleased with herself - I don't know why, as she only netted one starfish!
I was pleased with myself, though, when I realised that my distress ink rose matched the colours on the image perfectly!
