Dad Card

It's tough to find good masculine stamps.  That's why I really like this image and sentiment from Doodle Pantry.  I'm not saying that us gals can't enjoy a day of fishing.  But the fishing theme does make a nice guy card.  I haven't decided whether I'll finish the inside of this card with a Father's Day or a Birthday sentiment.  It would work for either.

This card is my April submission for the Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #24.  It's an Anything Goes Challenge, as usual.  But,  participants in the challenge who use a Doodle Pantry image (not just sentiment), are emailed a set for FREE and  are also entered in the prize drawing.  This month's free set is the Petite Bouquet, perfect for some Mother's Day cards.  It's a really great deal, their images are easy to work with, and by telling you all this I just cut down on my own chances of winning.  Forget I mentioned it.

I have also decided to enter today's card in these challenges:
Come and Get It Challenge - Where the Boys Are
Dragonfly Dreams Challenge #4 - Make it for the Boys
Crafting From the Heart Challenge #15 - Anything Goes
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge #208 - Kraft
