Fish Father's Day Card



Hello everyone! Here is a card that I made for my Dad for Father's Day. He is a huge fisher and hunter so this card will fit him perfectly!
I cut the fish, fishing pole, and basket from Everyday Paper Dolls. I did a lot of inking and highlighting on them. The basket I embossed with the Mesh Texture folder and I added twine to the pole for the fishing line. The fancy frame and mat was cut from Elegant Edges and I did stitching lines around all the mats. The sentiment tag was punched and I stamped the sentiment.
SUPPLIES:
My Craft Spot- Tiny Tags Stamps and Kraft Twine
Mesh Texture Embossing Folder
Cricut- Everyday Paper Dolls and Elegant Edges

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Go Fish- Sketch and Father's Day
Scrappy Mom's- Fathers Day
Exploring Cricut- Father's Day, must use 2 different Cricut cuts

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
