Fishing Fathers Day Card

Fathers Day is approaching, so I've started getting busy with cards for the dads in my life.  This card is for my father-in-law and is based on CPS Sketch #221:

The inside sentiment reads, " a reel good dad."

Card Details:
  • Card Base - Studio G (5"x5")
  • Paper - patterned paper from My Mind's Eye: Bohemia; cardstock by The Paper Studio
  • Cricut Cuts - fishing cuts from Boys Will Be Boys, page 71
  • Cuttlebug Embossing - circle background embossed with Swiss Dots
  • Other - doodling with white Gelly Roll pen and sky blue and emerald Le Plume II markers; light inking with brown Stampabilities stamp pad on background patterned papers; sentiment printed from my computer

I'm entering this project into the following challenges:

Amber's Crafts & Such - Challenge #13: Special Man
Card Positioning Systems - Sketch #221
Fantabulous Cricut - Challenge #63: #1 Dad
