Gone Fishin'

Hi, thanks for stopping by! Today I have a card to share with you that I made for my Father-in-law's birthday.  Yes, he loves fishing! I used this fantastic cat fishing image from MelJen's and coloured it with prisma pencil crayons and markers.  The DP is from K&Company and the ribbon is from Multicraft Imports.  I wanted to try something different with the ribbon so I used my glue gun and made a line of hot glue and rippled the ribbon along it.  Then the top corner was empty so I added a couple fun tabs with the same ribbon.  The wonderful wooden fish I found at the recycling center free store and I attatched it with a great screw brad from Forever In Time.  All the ribbon was inked just a bit around the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Sage.
For this card, I'm entering it in a brand new challenge blog called Just Keep on Creating!

YAY! A Meljen's cutie and look at that gorgeous ruffled ribbon. That hot glue did the trick didn't it. :-) That little wooden fish couldn't have worked out better for an embellie. Great eye for snaggin' that one Jennifer. :-) Hugs!

Jennifer this card is just so cute, I am sure you FIL will love it. i love what you have done with the rippled ribbon, what a fantastic idea. It's great to see so many crafters attempting men's cards, I really have to get out of my comfort zone and attempt them myself.
