Bugaboo Gus Hunting - SSS134

TGIF everyone! and Happy weekend ahead!!

Today I wanted to work with the Stella Says Sketch SSS134. I knew I wanted to use Gus Hunting and I  love the sketch! My dad's birthday is at the end of the month and he is a HUNTER ever since I can remember. I have tons of pictures of my brother and I when we were little sitting on the deer that my father's surprising that we weren't scared ..LOL!!

Here's my card:

LOL, Gus makes me laugh!! He reminds me so much of my DAD, hard for them to smile, often grouchy..LOL! My dad had a hard life he smiles more now that he is retired and enjoys his grandchildren, but growing up the smiles were very few. Oh well, no looking back right only forward!!

Here is a closer look at my copic coloring and at the inside of the card! Since I used black card stock I had to add something inside for us to write on.

Here is the Stella Says Sketch:

For this card I used a bottle cap for the first time. Since it has holes on the either side I added black twine to keep it in place. I thought it was a great masculine touch instead of a flower. I also used dew drops and  moose brads.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Catch the Bug, SSS134 sketch march bonus edition
Lacy Sunshine,  #5 anything goes
Simon Says Stamp & Show, anything goes

Thanks for stopping by,
love & create ...with a smile :)
