Aud Sentiments Design Team Card - Thursday 27 October 2011 - A funny card

Well we had a lovely array of cards for the challenge last fortnight.  This fortnight you are challenged to make a "funny card".  
This fortnight we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  There are a lovely array of images here to choose from.  
For my card I have used the image called "Stella Peeker - Another Drink".  Even with a wonderful image I struggled with this challenge as I don't normally do funny cards but I let the image and the wording do all the talking.  I coloured the image with my Promarkers and highlighted the cherries and Stella's glasses with Glossy Accents.  The backing papers/card are scraps I had in my scraps box.  These papers led me on the direction of burgundy, white and turquoise.  I inked the edges of the papers/DCWV card I used.  The card has been finished off with some gems, a turquoise grosgrain ribbon, burgundy checked ribbon and a flower with a brad centre.

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

Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Totally Papercrafts - Layer upon layer
Stamp-Scrap-Doodle - Bon appetit
Always with a Heart - Use up your snippets and then link to your most viewed blog post (well I did get an almighty shock here as it was certainly not one I had expected!!!).  Here is the link to my most view post at 353 pageviews.
Pile it On - Be happy
Lollipop Crafts - Embellish it - 3 or more embellishments (gems, flowers, ribbons and brad)
Paper Pretties - Embellish
Paper Shelter - Anything goes

Hi Kym

I am like you and rarely do "funny" cards (other than funny looking LOL) .. .. but this one is just great.

I love your layout and colour choices and the glossy accents is a great finishiing touch.

Thank you for sharing in the snippet playground this week and for sharing your most viewed post too .. .. I think a lot of folk have been surprised to see which of their creations came out on top!

Love Jules xx
