Secret Crafter Challenge #20 & Daring Cardmaker Fish or Frog


I find that it's always hard to make cards for chaps. I keep this Paper Nation stamp in the drawer for the odd occasions when I'm asked to make cards for fishermen! I don't like all the stamps in the series, but I quite like this one.
The sketch is from The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and the theme from Daring Cardmakers. The papers are Papermania and Canon. I stamped the trees onto the plainish Canon paper to try to make it seem a bit more rural.
The corners are Cuttlebug and the scallop square is a Nestability. I stamped the sentiment onto the square whilst it was still in the die so that I got a slight border and didn't go across the embossing. As I'd used Timber Brown Stazon, I had to clean the die and the stamp with Stazon cleaner!
