I'm Collecting Wrinkles

Well, well, here we are, again, for another Oldie But Goodie Thursday at Catch The Bug. It's so much fun to take the older images from Bugaboo Stamps and bring them back up into the spotlight, to spark your creativity and grab your attention. Sometimes you forget how much you love an image, until you see it, again! The DT has done a wonderful job today, with showing off some of Bugaboo Stamps' oldies but goodies! Head over to Catch The Bug to check them out and see for yourself!

Today's project for your viewing pleasure is a masculine card - I went with a birthday theme this time. Seems like a lot of the fellas I know have birthdays in the summer! My card uses the image and sentiment set, Gus Birthday - Collecting Wrinkles, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The card is done in black, green and blue. I used three different patterns of black printed washi tape, vertically, down the enter panel. Googly eyes were added to Gus to make him look extra cute! I've used three buttons, threaded with Baker's Twine,  in the bottom left corner of the image, as well as four green pearls to embellish each corner. My card layout uses the Sketch at Alota Rubber Stamps.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
