Gina K. Designs Blog Hop: The Wetlands

To see the full who won check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hop. 




This card uses the elements from Theresa's set (The Wetlands)

I love the masculine images from the set - Of course I used them to make some Father's Day cards! I kept them both Clean & Simple so that the image is the focal point! I used a watercolor brush with some chalks for this card! A few embossed lines under the sentiment really keeps with the clean design of the card!  




The images would also make great masculine birthday or thank you notes! Don't you think!  Again - chalked watercolored images with the Dad sentiment.  I emboss framed the main image!
