Dad's Big Catch

Dad's Big Catch -This weeks challenge at Sew Many Challenges is Father's Day!!!! I made this card using Tayla Fishing. Isn't he the greatest! I colored Tayla with Copics and I used my stardust Sakura to make the scales on the fish.
My image was cut with a Spellbinders die. My DP is TLC Shapes. The little tag was in the TLC package and my stamp is Dreamweavers.

For my Friday Freebie card, I used the same paper line and used the embedded embossing technique.
I seen this ribbon badge don on another site using another image, but it worked for this image as well and this image is FREE today.

First you print the image twice. Take one of the images and cut it out. Sorry my photo is blurry.
I attached my ribbon along the bottom streamers of the badge.

Then you take your ribbon and use a running stitch along the bottom edge and gather it.
I then adhered the ribbon to the badge. Lastly, I colored the center of the second badge and punched it out and adhered it to the center of the badge. What is great about this technique is that you can attach a brooch pin to the back of the badge and then dad can wear it.
