Today our challenge at Delightful Challenges is the opposite of the one for last week.  Now we want you to use two (2) designer papers and three (3) embellishments to create a card using a Great Outdoors theme. I love to embellish so even three embellishments is hard for me but I managed.  My little charm is actually some clipart from Microsoft that I printed three times on card stock, cut out and glued together with two facing one way and the other one facing the opposite way so if it flips around, there is still a fish.

I created the sentiment on the computer but the text for it came from a cross stitch pattern that I made for my late Father-in-Law almost 35 years ago.  The picture hung in his rec room until just recently when the house was sold so he obviously liked it despite the sarcastic words.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges;
