Going Fishin'

This card won TOP 3 at Lili of the Valley!!!
This card won Top 3 at Creative Inspirations!!!

Here is another masculine card I have created, I am on a roll with these, now I only need one more for Father's Day!!! My hubby is talking about taking my oldest boy, Grayson, 3 years old, on a weekend camping trip this summer. He wants to sleep in a tent and go fishing and EVERYTHING! I say, "Have Fun". Those of you who know me well know that I DO NOT CAMP, nor anything of the sort. My idea of camping is staying in a hotel without more than one restaurant! LOL.
However, I do love this LOTV image Gone Fishing, isnt he just adorable??? This is how I picture my son out fishing with my hubby, so stinkin cute!
I used my Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Paper line again for this card. I simply LOVE this pad for masculine cards, such gorgeous colors and patterns. I used my Notebook punch as the border strip at the bottom of the image panel, which I think is so perfect for masculine cards, the perfect touch. I also added lots of Tim Holtz embellies to this card to "man" it up. I used the Ornate Plate to house the sentiment, "Dream", which is a Adage Ticket. I added a Journaling Ticket behind the image panel, a metal corner to the corner of the image, and tucked some film strip in behind that for an added touch. I love the way it came out.
I colored my image with copics.
