The older I get ...

I noticed that the new challenge over at Totally Papercrafts was Bring Humour to your Creation and decided that I would make a card using one of my Bugaboo Gus images.

I eventually chose Gus golf and teamed him up with some My Mind's Eye papers.


I coloured Gus with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and used Distress inks to create the sky and grass.  The burgundy panel has been embossed with my Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder and I framed the sentiment with a disc cut using two Spellbinders circle dies.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Papercrafts Challenge 187 - Bring Humour to your Card
Rhedd & Rosie's 16th Challenge - Something for the men
