Dinner is Served Sir!

Good Morning lovely bloggers!
Did you remember to put your clocks forward in the UK?
 Dude Time Doodles are sponsoring this weeks Challenge over at
Pile It On For/From a Man
Here's the card I made!

This is Gordy Garcon, from Dude Time Doodles,
he's such a handsome dude, isn't he!
I wanted to make a simple card with clean lines.
I used a 5" x5" square card blank, added matts of
ribbed cardstock & core'dinations card.
I punched one edge of the core'dinations cardstock with an 
EK Success punch & added a little piece of ribbon.
My Stash is full of these little bits of ribbon which people 
cut from their clothes & save for me.
I also added some buttons from my stash.

I coloured Gordy with Promarkers, trimmed the image then
rounded the corners with a little punch. I then matted him onto the 
two kinds of cardstock, adding some detail with
 little brads at the corners

The sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad Designs
I matted it onto the ribbed cardstock

To finish the card off I decorated the insde!
I hope you like my card & I hope you can find the time to play in the
