Gone Fishin'

I'm so excited to have been invited to join the Polkadoodles Design Team, thank you so much to Nikky and the team for asking me.

To Celebrate joining the Team, Nikky has given us all a Digital Download to give away, I have chosen One For You from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection so if you would like to win this download pop over and join my Give Away HERE.

This is my first project for the current challenge - Add Ribbon or Twine.

I have used a Design Sheet and Papers from the Winston Delux Full Collection to create a masculine themed card. I printed the design sheet a couple of times so that I could add some extra layers of decoupage.

I inked the edges of everything and fussy cut the sentiment, sign and buttons twice so that I could layer them up for dimension. I also added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the buttons.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pile It On Challenge 111 - Vehicles
Crafting With An Attitud Challenge 17 - Always Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Creations Challenge 22 - Always Anything Goes
Doodle Pantry AIMP Digital Challenge 19 - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 312 - Two or More Design Papers
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper July Challenge - Anything Goes

Make sure you pop over to the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog and check out the DT inspiration, we would love for you to join us for our Add Ribbon or Twine challenge, if you need some more inspiration take a look at our Facebook page.

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated - don't forget to enter my Give Away HERE, you could win the fabulous One For You Digital Download from the Winnie Fruit Punch Collection.

Oh fabulous card Pauline, I do love the little "gone fishing" sign! Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, I am still crafting and blogging when I can but just haven't had much time lately :( Our living room has been stripped bare, so that is taking more time than we imagined and we are preparing for Benjamin to go off to uni in September, so my mind is else where at the moment (not looking forward to that one!) Hopefully I will get a bit more time when I finish work for the summer hols ;)

Take care Pauline,

Vicki x

I adore the look you achieved by inking the edges of everything. This has to be the cutest fisherman I've ever seen. If they all looked like him, I think I'd take up fishing. LOL Real great card Pauline.

Oh my GOSH ... how cute is this card?!! I love that you printed the image on some kraft and then just added accents. So clever (I will be CASE-ing this card at some point in the future). So glad that you shared this with us over on the Doodle Pantry AIMP challenge. Good luck!
