Father's Day card...gone fishin!

Hello All!

Don't you just love getting a new die and playing with it?  The Cheery Lynn die Bass Fishin was my new purchase yesterday after work.  I didn't have too much time after work to play with it- which must have been on my mind when I was sleeping.  I woke up at 2am and played in the craft room with the die until 6!  Oh yes...this was a good purchase.  Different papers were used, then different materials applied.  My favorite finishes were used on this card: clear Distress Crackle, Distress inks (Old Paper, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain) and Stickles (Seafoam) on the fish and Imagine Craft's CM Iridescent (blue) on the water splash.
Love the way the fish and splash turned out!  It is difficult to tell in the photo but the splash has a very cool iridescence to it (thus the name- LOL). 

The patterned paper is from Graphic 45's Good Ol' Sport.  The stamped sentiment is from Quietfire's must have set, Happy Family Days:
Happy Family Days with Calligraphic Frame (coordinates with Spellbinders™)
Yes, it took some time for everything to dry but it was worth the I was able to tidy the craft room while waiting.  Win-win.  :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend.
