My Man...

Morning my sweet bloggy friends. Today begins a brand new challenge over at One Stitch At A Time with the theme  The Men in Our Life in honor of father's day just around the corner. I am featuring a great image "Deep Sea Duncan" from Claire of Hope Jacare Doodles over at Stitchy Bear Stamps.

This month there is also a fabulous collaborative stamp collection that you can get for 
free if you spend just $12.00 in the Stitchy Bear Stamps shop, 
which I might add is sooooo easy to do! LOL!

This is my first try at a center fold card and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. You can definitely expect to see more of these here in the future! Although my man in "real" life does not dive I equipped this fella with the requisite reflective orange accouterments just to make sure I would be able to find him... just in case... ya never know! I fussy cut the fish and sea shells to add to the dimension - all in all, not bad! (smile)

Supplies Used:
DP - Recollections solid white card stock, KandCo. Sea Glass collection  Accessories - Spellbinder's M-Bossabilities "Sea Beauty"; Prisma artist's grade colored pencils; Front Porch 1/4" pop-dots

I am entering "My Man" in the following challenges:
