Best Catch ~ Dad's Birthday Card

I have a brand new crafty share today!
Earlier this month it was my Dad's 65th Birthday and my father is an avid fly fisherman who actually has a business tying flies for people.
It was only appropriate to make him a card with this fabulous Best Catch bundle which I love so much and GUESS WHAT? It's carrying over to the new catalogue.

Now was a great time to share this though, because only for another week can you get this as a bundle at 10% off. When it moves over to the new catalogue, it will not be discounted. So now is the time to grab it!

I did use a retiring product here and that is the fabulous Old Olive Linen Thread. I am really sad that this one is going as I love linen thread and love the texture of it, so that is something to grab now too, while stocks last!

I used my gorgeous crackle stamp too and stamped this in Early Espresso ink for a fun textured background.

To add texture I have cut out the 'fronds' I hope that is what they are called, from various textures including Old Olive cardstock, Vellum and Watercolour paper.
The ones that were stamped on watercolour paper, I coloured with some inks and an Aqua Painter to get some fun colours on them.

I have also coloured the fish and the fly with Watercolour Pencils. I don't really know if it's an accurate colouring of a rainbow trout, but it's all about imagination *wink*

It wouldn't be a 'Kayla' card without decorating the inside, so I added the gorgeous fisherman which was stamped and embossed with Copper.

My Dad really loved the card, which I am glad.

You can see all the products I have used linked below and it will take you directly to my store.
If you buy the bundle or spend over $50 I do have a sale this month if you use the host code. 

Happy crafting. xx
