Gone Fishing

Hello everyone....another day, another card....

This card is made using one of the stamps that my daughter bought me for Mother's Day. It's based on the Critter Sketch challenge 108 sketch.

The image is from the same illustrator as Pepper and Friends (Helz Cuppleditch), distributed by Trimcraft and is called 'Gone Fishing'. I've coloured using promarkers, cut it using Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large and edged it with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The backing papers are from my Joanna Sheen 'Messy Rabbit' cd and I've also matted it with bronze pearlescent paper. The ribbon is from Dovecraft (Earthtones) and has been in my stash for ages. It's great I'm getting to use this stuff up since I was introduced to the wonderful world of blogging. I've added 3 metal letters to spell out DAD as I plan to give to my Dad for his birthday, even though it's not till the end of May. I've never been so organised! I've also decorated the inside....

As well as the Critter sketch challenge I would like to enter this into the following :-
Cards for Men - The great outdoors 
Top tip Tuesday - Easter and/or animals 
My Mum's Craft Shop - Stamp it 
Divas by design - Stamp something 

Thanks for visiting...hope to see you again soon 

Happy crafting
