Happy Father's Day with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Today sees the next challenge at the 


with the theme this week chosen by little old me, I chose the theme of 

Happy Father's Day

who are offering a $10 voucher to the winner

So I made for my inspirational piece, you got it another fishing inspired card, but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge site to see more Father's Day Creations....................
I made an 8 x 8 inch card.  With some gorgeous papers from Grimsby Crafts, all with a metallic feel.  The base layer is a deep green and the ribbon from stash matches this so well with it's edging of gold.  The brads are from my stash and the pearls from the Hobby House.

Here is a close up of the image coloured in Copics, this image I was lucky to find when Lynn at Grimsby Crafts had a clear out of her own personal crafting bits, isn't it fabulous and totally realistic if you ask my husband.
