Happy Fathers Day...

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card that I created for my DH from the boys for Fathers Day. I used Kreaxions Goldfish Punch #606 to create the fish background for the card. 


To create the card, I punched 26 fish from a dark blue cardstock. After I had a nice pile of punched fish, it was time to start creating a design. I played around with creating lines of fish. I tried alternating the direction of the fish, but the pattern I settled for called for a cluster of three fish. Once I had my pieces all laid out on my cardbase I began glueing them down with adhesive.  

I stamped a "happy fathers day" sentiment (Melissa Frances stamps) and cut it out with the Kreaxions Circle Cutter. To finish off the card, I added a bit of vellum, netting and embroidery floss.

I'm entering it in the following challenges:
TotallyPaperCrafts..... punches/dies
Crazy 4 Challenges... twine, floss or string
Little Red Wagon... for dad
