If you follow my blog, you might notice that there are a lot of cards with a fishing theme - a popular activity among family members! This is for a brother-in-law. I fudged a bit on the sketch, as I wanted the names of the fish to show - one of the challenges using DP is to get the correct part of the pattern visible. This is Karen Foster dp. I used the Distressed Stripes embossing folder - and promptly covered all but a sliver of the border - and it does not show here! I like the slight lift it gives the bg.
