OSAAT DT - Challenge # 214 - The Big One

Hello to all my friends and fellow bloggers.  Thanks for popping by to visit.

It's time for another challenge at  Once Stitch At A Time. The challenge is Anything Goes and we would love you to join us.  If you use a digi image from our sponsor Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet you could win seven digi images.  You can still win a prize even if you don't use one of these images, so what are you waiting for?

My Card

click to enlarge

My card is 7" x 7"from Anna Marie Designs.  The green tufty grass paper is extremely old stash - I bought it 13 years ago when I was doing a memory album for my dad who had recently died, which is how I can pinpoint it exactly.  The stream image at the bottom of the card is also one that I have had for ages and unfortunately  I have no idea where it is from. I coloured it with Promarkers and fussy cut it to fit the width of the card. The main image is The Big One from Stitchy Stamps and both images have been coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment tag is one I found on the internet and it really made me chuckle so I just had to use it! The fisherman's creel basket was also an internet find. I added the fish separately and hung it from a piece of thread.  In real life it is very sparkly but the picture does not show that.

Amended to add the ending.
Oops, somehow I have lost the bottom of my post.  Cut off in my prime, as it were! Anyway, here it is now.  Hope you have all had a good weekend.
