Calendar girls crafty challenge 1

Today sees the start of a new challenge blog: Calendar girls crafty challenge and I am delighted to say that I'm privileged to be on the design team.

Calendar Girls Crafty Challenges

These challenges will always start on the first Thursday of every month and finish on the last Wednesday.

The theme for challenge 1 is 'father's day'.

For my card I used the lovely Stamping Boutique pocket patootie frog digital stamp, kindly provided by them as sponsor of the challenge. The background paper was printed from one of Lozzy's mixed media digital papers. I coloured the image with spectrum noir pens and die cut using a Todo decorative oval die, brushing the edge with peacock feathers distress ink. I tore a piece of fishing theme paper from PDA card and craft. I finished off the card with the sentiment and the pearlised circle stickers from Paperchase.
