Boy fishing

   It's Saturday and we are at the mid point of  another challenge at Send A Smile 4 Kids, the theme of which is 'Anything goes 4 kids'. I am honoured to have been asked to join this team as a design member.
 There are three very generous sponsors for the challenge:  Digi Stamps 4 Joy ($10 gift certificate), Whimsy Stamps ($15 gift Certificate) and
The Cutting Cafe (3 sets digis or cutting files)
   I have used the digi stamp 'Caught one!' from Digi Stamps 4 Joy. I coloured it using 
Promarkers and then cut it out leaving a small border round the edge of the image.
   I matted the fish paper printed using the La Pashe CD ROM 'Something for everyone' onto
core'dinations cardstock and added a strip printed from one of the Beatrix Potter CD ROMS
from Crafter's Companion. I attached this to the lower half of the white card. I then attached
the previously coloured image to the card using different depth foam pads (smaller depth for
the part on top of the layered papers).
   The large letters were cut using the Sizzix set of dies called 'Boys will be boys' and the smaller 
lettering were cut using Tattered Lace 'Elegant alphabet' dies.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Dream Valley - anything goes
   I Love Promarkers - men at work
   My Craft Creations - anything goes
   Whoopsi Daisy - anything goes
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - for a man (hope a boy can be classified as a small man!)
   Imagination Crafts - anything goes
   Scrapbook Stamp Society - anything goes with the option happy birthday
   Crafting From the Heart - anything goes
   Suzy Bee's Bloomin' - anything goes with the twist add layers
   Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes
   Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
   A Gem of a Challenge - a birthday card for a boy
   Crafty Creations - something old (papers and dies), something new (digi stamp)
