Aarrggghh!! It's A Prettie Quirky Guy in Brown and Blue!

Happy May the 6th! Two of my ponies were born on May the 6th, many years ago. Bother! I missed May the Force be with you, Day... So it has to be Sunday and that means it must be challenge time again, and that's just what it is, the next theme for the...
set by Caro, is...
Masculine,
something for a guy, man, boy and to use the colours
Brown and Blue!!
See easy!! We're sponsored by Paper Pretties who are offering our winner 6 digi images of their choice!
Here's my card. What y'think? I worked hard on that sentiment!
To start with, I coloured the edge of a pearl card with a brown ProMarker, edged some blue dotty paper with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The 6x6 paper stack came free with Paper Crafts Inspirations Magazine this month. (Link HERE to some more of their freebie papers!)
Edged and inked another bit of pearl card with brown, added the sky paper, (from a freebie paper stack 'Let's Fly Away' from Quick Cards made easy) along with the digi from our sponsors called AAAGGGHHH!! (I might have spelt that wrong!) I did turn him into a clear background PNG, then printed out three digi's (One printed over the sky and the others left normal) so I could do a bit of 3D-ing. He is very thin though, so decided not to add a third layer. Actually, it would've been easy if I'd just added his head and body as the third layer (??? Brain's now thinking have I got time to do that?...No! Oh go on, it'll make him look a bit fatter... oh...okay...next picture has an extra layer, making him have three bodies and three pairs of paws, but no extra arms or legs or tail or ears!! Bet you don't notice!!!)
I coloured him using browns and blues, used silicone glue to fix the bits together, added the ribbons and bronze pearls and a blue and brown buttons. The blue button has Hazard embossed onto it, so I just had to use it, nothing more hazardous than jumping out of an aeroplane!
The little chain dangling swivel thing is from a fishing packet of whatknots. (so much cheaper than crafty whatknots!)
The font is a Freebie, it's called CK Man's Print. I though it was just right, seeing it's a 'man card'. You can download it HERE! or just Google the name, but some sites do charge for it.
That's it! Hop over to Quirky Crafts and join in!!

  5. I likey your card. My DH didn't forget May the force be with you day!!!! Much to everyone's annoyance!!! He sent message to my DIL but as we were off to visit with my friend Judy she retaliated with it was more like 'return of the Jeddi(sp) day for us. My sons always used to say that when she came to visit.(After they'd seen their first Star Wars film) Guess you need to be there for it to be funny. I'm going to shut up now!!!! Annex :-)
