My DT card for Digi Choosday

Its time for our new challenge over at Digi Choosday

Our theme for you this week is

Fathers Day/Male card

We would love you to hop over and join in so please head over to the challenge blog HERE to enter your creations

I decided to make a shaped card this week using Polkadoodles Winston Digi Download, this image is called Gone Fishing and is available, in outline only, singly in the Digi Download store HERE
On the CD and in the download there is also a coloured version which is what I have used here

The spotty kraft paper, buttons, Gone Fishing sign and sentiment are also from the Winston digi download/CD, I used Gathered Twigs distress ink around the edges of the paper

I think Winston is perfect for male cards

I used my Go Kreate dies to cut the image and brown card to match the base card and added brown gingham ribbon along the centre of the card and tied a knot rather than a bow
