Humorous Birthday card for a Man

For my humorous card I used an image and sentiment from two different Bugaboo sets. I colored the image with Promarkers and added glossy accent to Gus' glasses and the balloon. I wanted to include some color on my card, so I used a scrap piece of chevron patterned DP and orange panels, as well as 3 different DPs with spots and stripes. The image is mounted on foam. I've got so many buttons in my stash, and I chose 3 different colors and sizes and added twine.
This card is for these challenges:
1) Come and Get It Challenges - Humorous Birthday
2) Stella Says Sketch - Sketch #203
3) Kaboodle Doodles - Buttons and Twine
4) Digi Makeover Challenge - #128 Add Dimension
5) A Gem of a Challenge - Spots and Stripes
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Great card. I am smiling as I write this as the Gus sentiment cracked me up. Great card and fab colouring as always!

Thanks about the suggestions for my card. I had not thought of doing a step or easel and it is a good idea. I have never made either so will check Spli tCoast Stampers for directions!
