Crafty Catz Challenge #563 Optional twist - Masculine Birthday

Good afternoon, I'm a little late with this post today, just got back from holiday and lots to do!
We had a lovely time and Marvin was a superstar and thoroughly enjoyed his first holiday... will share some photos later when I have more time.
This week's challenge at Crafty Catz is sponsored by the fabulous

Billie is hosting and has picked the optional theme of Masculine Birthday 
The image I used is Sports 16, I printed the image twice, once onto a panel of white card and once onto a scrap of grey dp with a very subtle pattern. I sponged Distress Inks onto the white panel and  stencilled  a grassy border and some 'ripples'  to give a kind of water effect, then stamped the edges with a TH script stamp. I stamped the sentiment and added a strip of green dp and some twine.  I cut the image on the  dp into a tag shape, inked the edges and a little stencilling with green distress ink, and adhered it onto the main panel, lining up the image so the fishing rod matched up (well almost!)

Well that's it from me today, need to go shopping for groceries as our cupboards and fridge are a bit Mother Hubbard.
Don't forget to hop over to Crafty Catz to see what my lovely teamies have created this week and remember the theme is optional if you want to play along.
Thanks for stopping by

Wonderful masculine card- that fishing rod is so skinny- looks like a challenge to fussy cut- love the look of it 'out of the box'. Fabulous card!
