For Father's Day

though it would be just as suitable for a birthday......for the man who loves fishing.......but thought I'd have a break from the teenage male cards......and go for something a bit cuter today.....using a lovely Forever Friends image.
Added a little fish charm to the rod........and the 'picture perfect' sentiment.....which I usually use for scrapbooking.......was stamped onto shrink plastic.......coloured with an ink pad.......then shrunk......it ended up fitting perfectly.
And some more challenges.......Prairie Fairy want 'summer fun'.........Here Come the Boys , Craft Your Days Away ,Crazy Challenge,Lexi's Creations,Crafting for all Seasons and Creative Inspirations want 'Fathers Day'......Simply Create want 'all about dad'
