You're a Great Catch!

I recently won a gift certificate to SugarPea Designs and I have had my eye on their set Great Catch so I knew right away what I was going to get. Living in Alaska we have so many opportunities for great fishing, most within a short walk/drive of the house. My husband and boys spend every free moment in the summer out trying to bring some fish home. I've still got salmon in my freezer they caught last summer, yum!! Anyway, this set is perfect for a house full of fisherman!

As soon as I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches I wanted to try and use this set for the first time. I tried coloring the raccoon a few different ways but ended up going with water coloring. The hubby and boys all have brown and green fishing gear so that's where I drew my color inspiration from and I happened to have some retired SU DSP that worked perfectly with the color scheme! I fussy cut the raccoon and popped him up with dimensionals.

The husband and boys don't normally gush over my cards but they loved this one, go figure :)
