Gone Fishin'


Hi everyone!  It's time again for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage.  As always, there are two parts to the challenge and you may choose either or both to play along with. We have a fun new sketch and this week's theme is "Big On Birthdays".  On today's card I used the Gone Fishin' rubber stamp by Pixie Cottage Stamps.


I paired it with patterned paper from the BasicGrey Granola Collection and brown cardstock by Bazzill.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and was colored using copic marker B91.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
