Fishing Memories - Meljen's Special Release

Hi ya everyone!
  Today, Melissa Jenkins the creator of the Meljen's Designs digital and rubber stamps is having a special release today.  The release is one to honor her amazing father that passed a year ago today.  He loved to fish.  This is a picture that Melissa has shared with us:

Because he loved to fish Melissa created these ever so cute stamps and asked that the design team if possible make a card to honor her father!  Here is the special release:

I colored up the moose and bucket of worms with my Copics.  Found some matching papers from my Christmas DCWV stack and simply set to work.  I used my circle nestables and cut a window in the card.  I used the cutout of the circle and cut again with a smaller nestable and made an outline for the window.  I then covered the window in acetate.  Next, I popped the bucket of worms off the page and also added a tag the  Loving Memory tag also a Meljen's Design to the card. 

I used my crinkle ribbon to wrap around the card.  I dug into the tackle box and used some fishing equipment too.  This lure matched perfectly so I nipped off the hooks with wire cutters (don't want the card receiver to get poked!!) Also added the line and snap to the ribbon. 

Finally, I placed the moose on the inside and came up with a sentiment that I cut out with my nestables!

 Thanks for looking and please stop by Meljen's Design to show Melissa your love and support with some kind words!  If you like the images - which I know you do - head on over to Whimys and pick them up!
