Phindy Challenge - Birthday Card

New challenge at Phindy's Place again - Birthday cards this time! Since I'm always (according to my beloved, at least) short of male birthday cards I decided to make one.


The image is just adorable, poor mr Brown looks decidedly uncomfy in his old-man-brown suit!!!

The papers are from Papermania Victoria & Albert collection, old-worldly like mr Brown himself. I've kept embellies to minimum, just Fiskars corner and border punch and couple of gems. The sentiments are from Amy R Birthday collection.

Copic colours used:
Skin: E50,51,53
Suit: E49, E29,E47,E57,E13
Doggie: E39,17,15,13,21
Shoes, hair, accessories: W00,01,03,05,07,09
Shirt, hankie, grounding: C00,1,3,5,7,8
Present, tie and wrap YR24, YR15, YR23, Y15
Flowers & present wrap:R27, R05, R02, YR15, Y32, G09, YG25

Don't forget to visit Phindy's Place and look at the lovely creations of the rest of the design team!

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Male card
Pixie Dust Challenge - Punch It Out
Your Next Stamp - Use a Border Punch
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - Celebration
Sir Stampalot - Punch it

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Oh my goodness... I want to be able to do colouring half as good as you do when I'm grown up!!! I'm always sitting here in front of my puter drooling over your gorgeous creations and can't believe a non-professional artist can do things like you do with some markers *wow wow wow*
