Reel 'Em In Dad

Hi everyone!  Happy Father's Day!  Hope you are able to spend time with all the special men in your life who are father's.  We are spending the day with my father-in-law. 

This is the card I'm giving my father-in-law today!  The image used on today's card is from the Reel 'Em In digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry. For added texture I tore the edges of the shadow layer and image. I also added some cheesecloth and lots of twine. I used black chipboard letters to spell "Dad" and used a portion of the Gadget Gears Sizzix Die to embellish the other corner.

Here is a peak at the inside of the card. I finished it to compliment the front of the card and included a personal message for the occassion.  I'm also playing along with the team at the Doodle Pantry using one of my favorite Doodle Pantry images.

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

Love all the texture - the use of cheesecloth is so original. I'll have to steal some from my kitchen.
