Fishing Rules

Happy Saturday!
Bet you didn't think you see me here, lol! I'm filling in for Pam today w/ a fairly easy card that's a  perfect guy card or for that avid fisherman you know. It's never too early to start thinking of making that card for Dad's Day.

The Fishing Rules was stamped on vanilla card stock and I used Copic markers to color it and a deckled rectangle die to cut it out. I love paint chips and I found this one in my stash w/ some cool shades of brown and I used Copics to color the white color bands in between the shades, die cut w/ a larger  deckled rectangle then embossed it w/ a distressed stripes folder. It's attached to a vanilla panel then to a larger rusty red panel. I pierced both of these and used a distressing tool on the red layer cause everyone knows guys aren't neat, lol. Really! My hubby only thinks he's neat...but he's seriously fooling himself, lol.

The red layer was also stamped tone on tone using Vicki's Versatile Background image and I added some rope like twine as an accent. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh and our wonderful Spring lasted a few days and now we're chilly again. What's up with that?? Have a great weekend!
