Fathers' Day with Atlantic Hearts

I know I keep saying it, but Michelle has another wonderful sketch for this weeks' challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I kept my card clean and simple, following her sketch.

I really went far back into the stash for this paper.  I love the masculine feel of the fish which was perfect for this Father's Day card.

To add some interest I distressed all the cocoa cardstock to show the white core.  The "gone fishing"  and Happy Father's Day sentiment were stamped with cocoa ink and I stamped again with fern and sky for the fish, cutting out and popping up with foam tape.  Some retired brown sparkles finish it off.

  1. I am also loving all the AH sketches - they really are terrific! The sentiment on this card is so cute (the underlying meaning) - I love it. You made this look so rustic with the distressing and the choice of paper. Great masculine card.

  2. GREAT card. I loved this sketch too. The sentiment you used is so much fun! :) Love the shades with which you stamped the greeting, too. Wonderful distressing and overall look! :) WTG!

  3. This is a fabulous masculine card! Those are so difficult, and your colors and distressing just take it to a classy level.
