Gone fishin'


The sun is shining today for a change and should be out tomorrow too, hooray, as it is Hubby's Birthday and we plan a day out at the coast. I've used another Digistamp Boutique image so will enter this card into their monthly challenge. The papers and ribbon are the old Dovecraft men's papers. I used the MS zigzag punch, so good for male cards. When I use buttons I stick them on with 3d glue available from Crafter's Companion and last time I used these tiny buttons I added the glue to the buttons and they were really fiddly to stick on. This time I added the glue to the paper and then stuck the buttons on top, much easier. I would also like to enter this into the challenge of water at Cards for men and Birthday at Crafty Sentiments.
