GIU - Growing In Unity Gal Monday

What a great week this is going to be!  I'm going to be featuring stamps from Unity Stamp Company each day this week.  Be sure to visit all week and comment on each of the Growing In Unity posts, because there will be a drawing for some FREE UNITY STAMPS from all of the comments received during the week.
     
Today's June 20th, the first day of Summer.  What do you love about summertime?  Though I'm not a fan of the heat, I've enjoyed fishing for as long as I can remember.  I didn't realize this when I moved here, but Idaho has lots of lakes, rivers and reservoirs that are great for fishing.  We've even got vending machines that sell nightcrawlers!
     
This isn't what I'd call a 'traditional' fishing card, but it was definitely fun to create.
        
     
It's a fairly easy card to duplicate.  First, I stamped the fishing pole and sentiment in hot pink, then mounted that rectangle to a matching hot pink rectangle.  Then, on a gray card, I added a striped panel (from American Crafts), followed by the stamped panel.  I added a rhinestone to the fishing reel and colored in the heart.  Last, I added two quick strips of very thin washi tape (Little B Designs) in an X pattern.
    
Thank you for visiting today!  Remember to comment on each of this week's posts to maximize your chance to win.  (One comment per person per post, please.) Winners have been drawn.  Thank you!
    
Happy Summer Solstice & Happy Stamping!
