This card is for my husband's friend's birthday. He has just been to stay with him in Kent where they went fishing on a couple of the days. I bought a tube of suncream specially for his fishing bag but he only thinks to use it if he can feel himself burning! Obviously, it is too late by then so he has returned with a very red face and is now peeling- apparently his friend is as bad- men, when will they learn?!
I followed the sketch at Papertake Weekly for this card. I had trouble deciding on the papers to use, but once I had decided to make the panel textured brown and mat onto dark brown it started to come together.
I love this word stamp from Elzybells- She must know a fisherman to have created this!
Crafts and Me have 'Friends and Family' as their challenge and ask us to make a card for a family member or good friend. Tanda Teaser have male cards as their challenge so I am also entering this here.
I found both these challenges on a new blog called Challenge Mania which aims to give a brief round up of lots of challenges. Thanks Ann for setting this up, I can strongly recommend a look to see if you can find any more challenges for your card or find a new challenge to try.
