Caarvarks sketch challenge - sketch #2

The current challenge at Caardvarks is to use one of the three sketches done by the talented Heidi Van Laar.  I chose Sketch #2 for my first card.  I had been asked to make a card for a male birthday and the gentleman in question likes fishing.  I made two cards as I'll give the person some options.  The image for this one was found on the internet and printed onto white linen card stock and lightly coloured with chalks.  The patterned paper is Basic Grey and the scalloped edge done with a Fiskars punch.  I layered the scallop under the PP.  The image was also layered onto the PP and I used dimensionals to pop it up a bit.  The sentiment is a Peelcraft one that I coloured black with a permanent marker. 
Thanks for stopping by.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one that makes more than one card so the person has options ;). This is a great card Dawn.

oh wow! *TWO* terrific fishing-themed cards in one day! that's an impressive achievement!!! (i think "guy cards" are MUCH harder!) how BRILLIANT to think of printing out an online image and coloring it with chalks--and the finished product fits MAGNIFICENTLY into heidi's sketch! ♥

Hi, Dawn! I like how you paired the red Basic Grey pattern with its compliment green. The gold tones really pull it all together. :-)
