Owen Fishing

Happy Friday!!!

  Today I want to share a card with you that I made using the stamp Owen Fishing.
you can find that stamp here.

I colored this image using my Prismacolor pencils and used a oval cross stitched die cut to cut it out.
I used a few other die cutes and the fishing pole was a 3D stamp I had received in a swap!

Thanks for checking out my card!!
