Fishy Fishy in the Brook

I made this card for my Dad for his birthday.  I struggle with Masculine cards, but I think this one turned out pretty masculine.  I used the Stampin Up set By the Tide.  I embossed the fish with some sparkly blue - okay sparkly isn't masculine.  I thought I had some flat blue, but I didn't.  I distressed the edges of the kraft cardstock and inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I tacked it down using brads.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Hampton Arts and was stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa ink.  The background paper is from a 6X6 paper pad by We R Memory Keepers - Anthologie.

Get your stamps out and start stamping.  You can always donate your cards to OWH if you run out of friends and family to send them to.  To find out more go here - Operation Write Home.

Have a great day and be inspired.
