One for the boys!

This week on the Totally Paper Crafts blog our theme is "one for the boys" and the sponsor for this challenge is Simon Says Stamps.

I've made a simple card for DH with one of my old High Hopes stamps, Santa Fishing, and coloured with Copics before cutting out to fit my frame and inking the edges.

Here it is, a slightly different picture to the one on the TPC blog as I've now added a sprinkling of glitter to his hat and the fish.  The festive patterned paper is from a very old Papermania pack matted with Cherry Cobbler card from SU!  I diecut the Marianne frame (LR0234) and Mistletoe sprays (LR0189) from the same kraft card as my base and inked the embossed areas and the edges with Walnut DI.  I've added the berries with my Wacco cream pearl maker pen, a little text, a button tied with string and a tiny heart finish things off.

The One Stop Craft theme is Christmas for the boys, and Everybody Art also have a Christmas theme and for the first challenge on the new Christmas at Sweet Stampin' blog they are just looking for Christmas creations, then over on the High Hopes challenge it's an anything goes theme so I'd like to enter all of their challenges with my card.
