Fish for Father

I made this card for two challenges - the sketch challenge on Split Coast and for this week's DoubleDog Dare Challenge I do with some SCS friends. Anne (itsapassion) was hostess this week - and her challenge was to use a real piece of newspaper on your card (!?!?!). That stumped me at first - but then I suddenly thought of wrapping fish in newspaper -so here it is! See - that's why we have challenges - to make us think of things we wouldn't usually do!! Thanks Anne for challenging me! You can join in on this newspaper challenge - just use the keyword DDC when you upload to your SCS gallery! You can see all the DDC challenge cards here.
