Today is Jonathan's 50th birthday and my Mum asked me to make a card so that she could give it to him today. Mum asked for something a bit silly which made it a perfect fit for our challenge. I've used the layout and chevron theme from Fusion Card Challenge - FUSION#8 and the colours from Dynamic Duos - DD#100. Sadly, it is the last ever challenge at Dynamic Duos and I'll miss playing along with the team.
I made the card base from Smoky Slate and cut a white panel using the Stitched Square die from Lil Inkers. I stamped the little turtle into the corner of the card and coloured him with Copics. I punched some bright yellow chevrons from design paper and adhered them to the card. I finished the front with a fun greeting. For the inside I cut a mat of yellow design paper, a panel of white on which I continued the funny sentiments and repeated the image of the turtle. Jonathan will enjoy this card very much!!
For more cards that give us a giggle, check out the cards from the rest of the team. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you make!
See you soon - well soonish, it's rather busy here at the moment. I'm really enjoying having Mum here with us. We've been out shopping a couple of times and are now in the middle of party preparations for Jonathan's party (Saturday), so I might not be about much. Bye for now.
What a fun card, Deborah. I love the saying and this cute turtle. The chevrons and the false stitching fit very well!
Super fun card - I love that turtle!
Such an adorable birthday card Deb. You did a stellar job on coloring that cute image....and I love the way you showed the sentiment on the inside. I often forget about the interior of cards, but I think they should look as pretty as the outside. Well done, my friend.
This gave me a giggle! Love your cute tortoise, beautifully coloured, love the continuation of the sentiment inside too. This is one fab card for The Male Room
This card is sooo cute! And CHEEKY! :-)
Fancy meeting you here Deborah!!!! Just lovely. This critter is huggable, giggly cute!! Wonderful take on Fusion!!! Yes, sad about the DD challenge, I must hurry to pay my respects to play too...and you have given me the reminder that the Male Room has a new theme up, thanks!!! I have 6 brothers so a real masculine card stash is definitely in order!! I was so happy when one of my brothers called and really ooo'd and ahhhhh'd over his card, so glad that I am getting better at sending them out!!
Yes, awesome job, inside and out, on this card. The sentiment is a hoot! and I love how you repeated the long-lived turtle on the inside. Great job incorporating the challenge colours, too. Thanks for joining in with the Dynamic Duos for our final week.
