A Fishy Father's Day

Good morning to you all
Today I am sharing with you one of the many fishing inspired cards I have to make each year.  This one is for Father's Day.  My husband spent all day Saturday making up his pva bait bags and putting inside them his little round bait, so this gave me an idea for my card.  I am sure his dad will know exactly what it represents. I just liked all the coloured beads :)

So here it is

The weight of the fishing bead bag is sort of a tad to heavy but hey ho!!

The base colour and contrast is black with those gorgeous Papermania papers, I used some spiders webbing black from Paula, an MS punch some little scrabble tiles the electrical wire ribbon to hold all those beads, and grand nestie oval and scallop oval.

Here is a close up of the digital image from Make it Crafty
such a lovely image to colour

A warm welcome to my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

CCEE Stampers - Let's Go Fishing
Copic Marker Europe - Boys Aloud
Cute Card Thursday - Tie it Up (ends of the fishing thing)
Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes
Our Daily Bread - Sky or Water (both)

Hugs and Enjoy Your Day
