Blue Fish Greeting Card

This card is a good choice if you need a greeting or birthday card for a man. The fish motif and the colors of blue and white reminds one of summer at the lake or sea where men love to be found with their tackle boxes and fishing rods. The top design created by a Lacè template looks like fish scales and accents the card perfectly.
