Gone fishing from Polkadoodles

Good morning my lovelies, its inspiration time at Polkadoodles as you've still got loads of time to enter our Father's Day or Anything Male challenge to be in with a chance of winning a fabby prize!

I had a lovely evening colouring one of the gorgeous images from Twiggy and Toots with my Graph'It Markers. I adore this collection, you can find it here on CD or here as a download or if you prefer you can get the digi on its own too, its called Gone Fishing. I've added lots of lovely papers and embellies from the collection and as always Nikky has come up with a fabulous selection of sentiments too. The sentiment is layered up on a kraft shape die cut with a spellbinders die. I've distressed everything with a craft knife and lots of tea dye distress ink.

I had a good rummage through my stash and added some burlap, green gingham ribbon topped with a wooden button and some twine.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC: K is for kritters
Aud Sentiments: bingo plus sentiment
 (my line is markers, digi stamp, die cut)
Crafting for all seasons: its a boy thing
Crafty Gals Corner: the great outdoors
Digi Choosday: fathers day or male
Papertake Weekly: something for the boys
Scrapbooker PhD: summer fun
Shopping our Stash: cute critter alert
