My Grafico Challenge is Back!

Good morning all! 
Happy Monday to you all & I hope you had a fab weekend!
Over at My Grafico, we had a unexpected week's holiday due to one thing & another but we're all back on track & raring to go after our impromptu break!
I hope you'll be able to join in with our Anything Goes Challenge this month!
Grab a cuppa by the way, you might need it!
Here's my DT card!

I just love making Twisted Easel cards, such fun!

This week we were given these wonderful ticket sentiments from La La Studio to work with!

Such a great set for all manner of occasions!

The Image I used for this card came from Dude Time Doodles, he's called Hillbilly Moonshine!

I coloured him up with promarkers & added a bit of glitter to the bubbles above his head!
I cut him out with a square scalloped nestie.
I then used a couple of distress inks to grunge him up a bit & distressed the edges with a pair of scissors!

For the layout of my card I used a sketch from Little Claire's

This card is for my brother-in-law's birthday!
 The day after his birthday, he's heading of to Majorca for his future son-in -law's stag party! 
I really hope he doesn't end up in this state! lol
The DP I have used was the result of a printer malfunction, which resulted in my printer going in the bin!
Still, I hung on to it & it came in handy, so I have to say it was a happy accident!
As well as the Ticket Sentiment which I used as the stop for the easel section of the card

I computer generated a little funny sentiment of my own

As the image I used was from Dude Time Doodles, I wanted to enter their challenge this week which was to use any sketch & to add a flower! So Here's my grungy flower!

A couple of Prima flowers, grunged with distress inks & a little card candy centre!
I also dotted some card candy about just to bring everything together!
I do hope you like him!
Thanks so much for looking!
Don't forget to visit the other DT members blogs & give them a bit of love too! You'll find the DT list next to DT cards on the challenge blog!
