Card Crafter's Circle/Challenge #1

Hello, and welcome!

I have been so excited to get this posting done!
Why?.....because it is my first post for Card Crafter's Circle....woohoo!

There will be a new challenge, every Friday, and Pauline has lined up some fantastic sponsors.....
Our first sponsor is the wonderful and the Challenge #1 theme is 
Our wonderful sponsors are giving the winner 7 digis of their choice, so click on the link, and enter one of your creations.......

My DT creation features a wonderful ol' guy........

Isn't he fun?  His name is Gus, and you can find him by clicking on the above link......and there's a great SALE at the moment, so don't miss out!

This card is destined for SIL #2, who has a birthday on Sunday....he's only 35 but is an old soul, and I think he's going to love this old-timer....ha!
Everything is coloured up with Promarkers, and I printed 2 images, and layered another trike on top to give a bit of a bit of dimension, me.......and some of the backing papers are embossed.......

The funky sentiment comes with the image....great deal, eh?
I used a wooden stick (pinched from Costa Coffee, heehee) to stick the sentiment on.......

Layered on to red cardstock and did a bit of faux stitchin' with white glaze pen......embossed the tan strip with a Cuttlebug folder, and more faux stitches.......there are even some real stitches on the panels, too.....

Little wooden star, to match the wooden stick, and poshed up with a button.......done!

I do hope you will pop over and see all the really great creations from the rest of the Design won't be short of inspiration, I promise....and link up to join the fun!
