I love the logo for this months challenge for Paper Smooches called Men so it inspired me to come up with a card.

I started with Bristol smooth card stock. I took a cloud border die and made a stencil and turned it upside down to make the waves.  I used Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks.  I then put some Squeezed Lemonade on the old sun ray stencil I have had for years.  I used the Paper Smooches My Guy stamp set.  I blended some ink on the fish, fussy cut it and covered it with 3 layers of clear embossing.  With each layer, it is amazing how smooth and shiny the fish became! I stamped the fishing pole and also clear embossed it.  I attached a string from the rod to the fish. The letters come from my two favorite alphabet die sets.  "Size" is the Paper Smooches Sassy Letters and the word "matters" comes from Alphawhimsy.  The best part of these alphabets, the letters actually look better if they are NOT straight!  Some clear embellishments that look like water droplets and a bit of Stickles on the sun and I was done.  I saw this sentiment on a man's tee shirt and thought it would make a funny card!

You have to visit the Paper Smooches store.  I guarantee you will find something you have to have.  Kim does an amazing job, always quick shipping!
