Fishing you a Happy Birthday

When I saw the latest Designer Challenge at My Creative Time, I knew I had to play along because I never have enough masculine cards.

I started with a Buff Ivory card base onto which I added a fishy patterned paper from my stash. I used the new My Creative Time - Lost At Sea and Stipey Background which was stamped on Brown Kraft cardstock.  I added a length of Natural Burlap ribbon where the patterned paper and the stamped background pieces meet. 

The port hole is created with the dies that come with the Lost At Sea set.  I am actually happy with how this turned out. 

I am going to also share at: 
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
Catered Crop - Manley Men
Darnell's NBUS challenge - The stamps and dies are all new.  Thanks Darnell…I've really had fun breaking out new schtuff! :-) 
Thanks for stopping by today!
