Crafting When We Can Challenge #21

We have another fabulous challenge here at Crafting When We Can!  This fortnight we want you to create a card using the theme Summerfun!  Our sponsors for this challenge are:



Crafty Ribbons

This adorable image is called "Let's Go Fishing".  Totally appropriate.  

I have colored him with Whisper Strokes markers with some Stickles by Ranger and some Glossy Accents on his boots to give that rubbery look.  I embellished with some fish from Digital Delights, border punches from Martha Stewart for the flowers and butterflies, ribbon from Westwater and sentiment from my stash.  The papers are from Bazzill and DCWV. The background I stamped with a crackle stamp and distress ink both are Tim Holtz.  

This is my first attempt at a step card.  It was a little harder to decorate than a regular card but I think I did OK.  I hope you do too.  

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says - Use a bit of brown
Dutch Dare Card #170 - Summer Fun
My Mum's Craft Shop #62 - About the boys
Scrapalicious USA - Summertime

Thanks for visiting and I hope you will all stop over and see what the other DT have created over at Crafting When We Can!
