I made this Fathers Day card for DH. He loves to go fishing and enjoys the relaxation as much as the sport of fishing. I thought this card summed that up, quite nicely! We were not able to celebrate Fathers Day on the official day, so we celebrated it at the end of June, when my girls and grand children joined us at the lake.
Hopefully you will not be too bored, as this is the same image I used on my Son In Law's card shown earlier on this blog. It just suits SIL and DH so well. I had to use it!
The fish scale paper is a snippet of scrapbook paper. Wish I had bought more of it at the time. I have one full 12x12 sheet left and will use it for fishing layouts this summer.
The sentiment stamp is from a Costco set purchased many years ago and yet never before used.
