A Card For A Real Card

Good Morning Bloggers, is it that time already???
Indeed it is!
Time to pop on over to the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog
Pick up this month's Freebie & try to 
Win yourself a Guest Designer spot for a month!
use the Freebie to create a card for a Dude,
 it can be funny, cheeky or even a little bit naughty!
You have just one week to upload your creation to the challenge blog!

The Dude & Dudettes love having different playmates each month!
Sometimes, we like them so much we ask them to stay!!!

This weeks Freebie is Mo Stooge
he's already available in the store so if for some reason 
you miss him, you can still buy him!

Without further ado, here's my card!

I made a Playing Card Card for my Brother In Law.
I used an A6 Linen Embossed card blank.
As you can see I added Mo the right way up, then added 
him the other way up just like a face card in a pack of playing cards.
I coloured him up with a mixture of Copics & Promarkers.
I added the name to both sides of the card & just a little bit of Card Candi.
The corners of the card were rounded off with a large corner punch,
to make it look like a playing card.

On the back of the card I added a Union Jack Design Paper
 from Southfield Stationers. I love their papers as they are
excellent quality & very reasonable!
The inside of the card has a simple paper insert.
Need more inspiration???
