Dad's Big Catch

Dad's Big Catch - This is my first design team project for Craft Your Days Away. I have followed this challenge blog since it's beginning and I am so thrilled to have been invited to join their time. They are a very talented group of ladies and I am enjoying working with them.

Today's challenge is to make something for Father's Day or for a man. For my card, I used paper Boys to Men by Paper Pizazz. This package has 3 color schemes and lots of extra goodies such as the tag and alphabet blocks that I used on this card.
My image is The Big One by Stitchy Bear. I colored it with Copics. I cut the image with a spellbinder and stamped the edge with a Studio G stamp that was inked with Rangers Forest Moss.
Simon Says Stamp is our sponsor for this weeks challenge, which means that you can win some of their yummy stuff. They carry everything from Copics (they are the first place that I have seen to have the new 2011 colors of Copics available individually) to Ranger inks to Spellbinders (again they have the new 2011 release.) You can visit their shop by clicking on the above blinkie. Show them some Craft Your Days Away love.

The challenge at Craft Your Days Away challenge is a fortnightly challenge, so you have 2 weeks to get your project in. You can make a card, but all types of projects are invited to enter.

This card is entered in the following challenges:
