Birthday Gus

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Hope you all have some gorgeous weather like we do here.  So have you all met Gus from Bugaboo Stamps?  I have to say that Gus is one of my favorite characters there. Here he is looking happy to be holding a bouquet of balloons. I used some new Bo Bunny papers that I got. I hated to cut them up b/c they are great for a man's card. I stitched the panels (inside & out), added the seam binding down the middle and the buttons with some twine (I'm gonna have to get more of this stuff!). I stacked the balloons for dimension and also added some Diamond Glaze to the balloons and to his glasses.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Paper Sundaes - Masculine Colors
Craft Your Passion - Male Card or Project
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Stripes
Cards for Men - Recipe

I hope everyone is off to a great Tuesday morning!
