Trophy Trout

Okay here it is, a mail holder made out of a dollar store napkin holder.  This was the challenge from Karen over on StampTV.    I made this for my dad who is an avid fisherman, as in he fishes every day.  The trout is from Theresa's latest set Gone Fishing from Gina K Designs.  Theresa had to wonderful guest designers for Gone Fishing Melissa and Mary Anne.  One of the cards that Melissa did really caught my eye and I knew as soon as I saw it I had to case it, this is my project casing her.  You can see Mellisa's card here.  Thank you for stopping by.
