A card for Nick

I have made this concertina tag card for my Brother in Law Nick.

I have used half a piece of 12 x 12 green Bazzill card. I have used scraps of ribbon to tie around the hole in the tag. The images are from Karens Doodles Nick is very keen on fishing and has two young daughters so thought these images would suit the oaccasion. I have flipped the little girl digistamp in Photoshop Elements so I have two girls but with the fish shown in opposite directions. I have coloured the images with Promarkers and then cut around them. I have added glossy accents to the fish to make them look wet.

I used my nesties to cut out the ovals and scalloped ovals and stuck them to the card with 3D foam pads, I then stuck the images on to the ovals with Pinflair glue gel.

The sentiment is computer generated.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
