It's Inspirational!!!

Good Morning all!
Today is the 3rd Wednesday of the month, that means it's Inspiration day at
Dude Time Doodles!
We have a brand new challenge & here's the inspiration for you to follow!
Colours, photo's & a theme!

Here's my little card

Now, I'm not sure what this type of card is called but I've seen a few around 
when I was blog hopping, so I thought I'd give it  a try!
This side view lets you see the folds

The image I have used is from Bonibleaux Designs, he's called "Waylon Wave"!
Fit or what?
He sure is one handsome Surf Dude!
The papers I have used are from the Two Peas In A set from My Grafico.
I love these papers & they feature on many of my projects!
I simply tore them to give the ragged edge.

I coloured Waylon up with Promarkers, then I used Woodware Fluffy Stuff 
to make the foam on the waves! 
It's the first time I've actually used this
on a card & I'm loving it so far!
Here's a closer look

Okay, so it's not perfect, who cares? But, can you see that six pack? LOL

I added a computer generated sentiment made using LMS Hippy Chick font. 
You can download it free from here for personal use.
I added some bakers twine which i tied some half hitches in & knotted.
Then a couple of photo corners to finish the card off!

So, that's my card, I hope you like it

Now, lets see what you can do with this one!
Don't forget to check out the challenge blog & the other
