F for Fishing

I made this card for the Cardz 4 Guys 'Something beginning with F' challenge (and I've obviously chosen Fishing).  I'm also entering The Craft Barn Two Weekly Challenge 'What Men Like to Do on a Bank Holiday' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.  I'm also popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Gone Fishing' Mini Masterpieces
Snippets: First Edition 'Man Made' zig zag paper, brown card, hessian ribbon

I layered a square of zig zag paper onto brown card and wrapped the hessian ribbon around it  as I thought this looked a bit like a fishing net!. This was then attached to the card front.  The topper was already pre-coloured and die-cut, so I layered it onto brown card and attached it with foam tape.  Quick and easy!
