Gone Fishin'


Hello and welcome!  There are a lot of challenges for Father's Day and Masculine themes this week.  I created this CAS card to cover a few of them.  I am using a stamp of this great fisherman that I recently received in blog candy from Shirley.   I used it with a never used Mark's Finest Paper sentiment. I added some diamond embossing and ribbon for texture.  This can be used for Father's Day with an appropriate verse inside.

Supplies:
Stamps: Art Impressions Golden Oldie and Mark's Finest Papers On The Fly
Copics: B21,24, E0000,00,07,37,43, YR12,18
Pencils
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Papers: Neenah Solar White, GKD Pumpkin Spice
EF: Cuttlebug Pop Culture Borders
Ribbon from Stash

Challenges:
Simon Wednesday: Says  Father's Day/ Masculine
Sweet Stampin' Challenge: Father's Day or Special Man/Boy
CAS-ual Friday: CFC132:  What a Catch! Create a Guy card with the following catch...you can't use kraft as a color at all, and you have to include some sort of ribbon.
Really Reasonable Ribbon: Theme is masculine with ribbon
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes with optional extra  to make something that reminds you of summer or has a summery theme.
Crafty Catz Challenge: Theme is Inspired by a Song.  My song is "Gone Fishin' " recorded by Bing Crosby
Die Cut Diva: June challenge -Use HIS, HER, or OURS theme.  I am using HIS:
Make a masculine or Fathers Day card and/or use this color scheme
I covered all the colors including gray for the worms. Used embossing folder.
