FCCB Father's Day Outdoor challenge

I will be posting twice today so hope you will find time to check out both of my projects for today.  
The first post is  for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and the second for the 
It's time for another great challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  This week in honor of Father's Day the challenge is to create a project for Father's Day with an outdoor theme.  I was working on a layout of my granddaughter fishing with her dad and decided to make a matching card for my son in law.  The card is 5 x 7 using Kraft paper as the base.  I then cut some green distressed paper I had in my stash  and sewed it on to the card.  
The moose and fishing sign came from the Camping Critters cartridge.  
The moose was cut at 5 inches and the sign at 3 inches and then I added a handcut post.  
I added googly eyes to the fish and moose and distressed all the edges with 
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  
Here is the inside of the card.  I used a stamp from my stash.  
I am also entering this in the Frosted Design stitching challenge. 
Here is the layout I made that gave me the idea for the card.  
So get out your crafty mojo and lets's see those projects for Father's Day.  Remember we are looking for an outdoor theme like hunting, fishing, hiking for this weeks FCCB challenge.  Remember to link up and join us for the challenge.
