Secret of Fishing

     I wish I were on the dock with this kid!  I enjoy fishing.  The secret of fishing is patience and the right bait!  I imagine he is using worms. 
     Flourishes is releasing their Christmas collection this week.  There are challenges to win the entire release of 5 new sets!  The first one is Any Which Way.  You use one of these sketches any way you would like.
     My card uses Flourishes' Kids Play.  I took out the brayer to make this tranquil fishing scene.  The patterned paper is Basic Grey.  I used the fishers of men embossing folder from ODBD for texture.  A gelly roll pin was used to highlight the trees and ripples.  I have a love/hate relationship with that pen but that's for another post.
     That's it for me.  Now go forth and create something....after you leave a comment of course!!
