Stamping Vacation: What a Guy Challenge

[Edited to add: the Stamping Vacation blog is on hiatus and I am not sure if it is permanent or not. Thanks for all your support!]

This month's What a Guy challenge at the Stamping Vacation challenge blog invites us to create a masculine card with a fishing theme. Since Father's Day is approaching, there's no better time for this!

Here's my project:


The fishing-man image is from a former sponsor of Stamping Vacation: Stamping Dragon Designs.

In retrospect, I should have used a punch to add interest to the upper edge of the patterned paper... Oh, well...

You have an entire month to link your creations for this challenge: until June 19th. Each entry qualifies towards a drawing at the end of each month, this month's prize being a $25 gift certificate to the place of your choice!

There's still time to enter the other challenges I'm currently over-seeing at Stamping Vacation: Have You Tried, White Space and Lots of Paper. The more entries there are, the larger the chance I have of winning a gift certificate being offered to the design team! Thanks for your support! ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I look forward to seeing your creations!

Oooh, that corrugated BG looks awesome Dana, and your sponged ink is a great way to highlight a line image without coloring it. Need to remember that.
