Edwin Fishing - Cute Card Thursday & Splitcoaststampers Challenge 172


I made this card for my father-in-law (he loves fishing!) and it is for this weeks Cute Card Challenge and also challenge 172 on Splitcoaststampers (see below sketch). This weeks Cute Card Challenge is to make a card for the men and boys in your lives! Thank you so much Jakki for sending me this perfect Edwin image. Papers used: Cherry Arte "Kitty Lou - Sweet Blossoms". Bazzill Bling Blank Cheque, In the Pink & Emerald City : Happy Birthday cuttlebug embossing Folder. Added a real fly and fish brad! Image coloured with my Prismacolour pencils with sansador and paper stumps to blend. Also used my Sakura stardust pen and Twinkling H2O for the water. The lettering was cut from the Mickey and Friends cartridge on my Cricut. I cut this out on a cereal box to give the lettering a chipboard effect. I am so pleased with how this card turned out.
