Make It Funny

Good morning all & happy "hump" day!
Halfway through the week & it's all downhill from here! Yay!
Todays project is my DT card for
where the theme for the new challenge is

I made a twisted easel card using the image 
from our sponsor this time 

I coloured Gus with a mix of flex & pro-markers, distressed the edges,
then did a bit of matting & layering. The papers are from Papermania.
I also added some glossy accents to the image.

I added the sentiment (which comes with the image) as the stop
for the easel section by mounting on foam pads.
I also added a sandpaper bunker which I hand cut and.
a couple of buttons threaded with twine

A side view just to let you see the fold if you are not familiar
with this style of card.
