The 40th Birthday Card ( number 1)

I have a lot of 40th birthdays this month including my husbands, and they are all male !!!! so where to go for a great images to use on men's cards bugaboo stamps of course. This one has been made for our friend Chris.


I have used Gus for this card and coloured him in with spectrum noir pens and added glossy accents to his glasses, he has been matt and layered on t different colour card stock and then stuck on some retro paper ( from DCWV ) I think, I have then just added 2 buttons with string and a couple of sentiments, the circular one being a freebie from the very talented Netty. 
Sorry about poor photo quality it was getting dark x

I would like to enter it into the following challenges,

Oh I do love the Gus character and I use him on many of my masculine cards I make for my hubby. I just get a chuckle when I look at him. Love your card with that fabulous paper and the button with the tied string. Thanks for joining the Challenge at Lexi's Creations this week@
