Fishing With Grandpa

Good morning everyone & happy Saturday to you all!
It's time for a card!

This little project was made using decoupage & matching papers from the 
If you don't fancy the CD, you can buy the printed sheets here.
Such a sweet little scene, brings back memories of those long, lazy,
 hazy days of summer!
Made me want to sing too! Gone fishing.....

My card base was cut with a Grand Nestie die.
I used a mat of plain white paper then matted the design papers
on to the white & blue. The fishtails were cut by hand.
Some little fish charms, twine & a button were added to embellish.

A little view of the side, you can just about see that I have
decorated the inside too!

Here's the inside! A similar layout to the front, but
with a little punched border under the panel for the message!
Thanks for visiting today! I hope you enjoyed your time here!
