Here Fishy Fishy

And my last post of the evening as I am starting to get square eyes and it's another Fathers Day card I only have another two to do after this yay.

I have used the fab new image Ricky from Tiddly Inks and coloured him with my Promarkers. I have used papers from a Dovecraft pad and some brown card stock from my stash. The sentiments are hand typed and yes that does say Grandalf. Charlie's Grandad said that is what he would like to be called when Charlie was born and it has kind of stuck. I added faux stitching to the image and the sentiments as they looked a little plain. I added some string and more of my natural ribbon, yep I still love the stuff. I also found a little metal fish charm which worked perfectly with the fishy theme so I added that to.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Bearly-Mine - Charm
Cards For Men - Fathers Day
Love to Create - Fathers Day
Tiddly Inks - Fathers Day
