Daddy, You're A Prize Catch




Well, I just got done putting together this Father's Day card and I wanted to share it with all of you..

To create this card, I used the Everyday Paper Dolls cart to cut out the fish, boat, fishing pole, and fish basket.. The seaweed and grass was cut from Create A Critter.. I used a Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug embossing folder on my fish to give him a scaly look, and I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder to add some texture to the fish basket.. My sentiment was created on the computer... To finish this card I did a lot of inking, some tearing, used decorative scissors, a white marker, stickles, some eyelets , and twine..

Challenges:
A Crafty Little Place - One for the boys
A Spoon Full of Sugar - enjoying the Sunshine
Bitten by the Bug 2 - fish cut
Cupcake Craft Challenges - one for the boys
