My lessons learned: this time I created my card on a piece of white cardstock 1/2" smaller than my actual card and attached it to the card when I was finished. I know a lot of card makers do this because it allows them to attach ribbon and brads without changing the inside of the card but for me it took all the stress out of making a mistake. I was able to experiment with my inks and not worry that I would be wasting a card if I didn't like the look. Luckily I really like the look. I think I created a really peaceful scene. Most fisherman will tell you fishing is only partly about catching fish and partly about being out on the water. My brother liked it too.
I would like to share my card at:
Sentimental Sundays anything goes (plus a sentiment),
Pollycraft Monday Challenge boys, boys, boys,
Make It Monday linky party
Southern Girls Challenge slugs and snails and puppydog's tails
The Stamping Boutique someone special (just don't tell my brother that, you know cause he's my brother, hehe)
