Mister Old Fart

Good morning!  Today I have a humorous card to share...featuring Bugaboo's Gus at his finest!  LOL  This was made for a friend from work who needed a card for a 90th birthday celebration.  This image/sentiment from my stash was a perfect fit...I hope the "birthday boy" enjoys it!

The sketch from Here Comes the Boys is from their last was perfect.  Gus is colored with pencils...don't you love his bunny slippers?  I've done a lot of layering and added some mesh and ribbon for embellishing.

Image/Sentiment: Bugaboo
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Orange Zest and Dark Chocolate, My Mind's Eye DP
Embellies: Brown Mesh, PTI Canyon Clay Satin Ribbon
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, PTI Number Dies, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

My husband was looking over my shoulder as I pulled this up - he's been offering his take on the Opus Gluei entries and he laughed as soon as he saw it. He noticed the bunny slippers immediately and so you have a male stamp of approval. I am sure the birthday boy loved it! It is so cute, colorful, and very lighthearted. beautiful design and use of color here! Thank you so much for coming back to participate in another of our challenges, I look forward to seeing your name pop up in the submittals!
