"Gus" Birthday Card - Mojo Monday 206

Hey all, I've been away for a while. Had a wonderful visit with my oldest daughter and next week my youngest daughter is coming home, so I thought I had better sneak a card in here. My brother-in-law is celebrating his 60th birthday, so I had to pull out my favourite digi image "Gus" from Bugaboo Digi Stamps

Normally I make these cards more simply with white bases and some contrasting bright colours, but I liked the sketch at Mojo Monday this week so I thought I would try something a little different for 'Gus'. I used one of Close To My Heart's new paper packs called 'Dreamin'. The opposite side of these papers, have beautiful floral designs, but for this card the more geometric patterns suited a masculine card better.

I paper pieced the robe and slippers and coloured the image with Copics.

Supplies - Card size is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Paper - Designer Paper - Dreamin' (CTMH), Brown cardstock (Bazill), Bamboo and Colonial White cardstock (CTMH)
Stamps - 'Gus' digi stamp (Bugaboo), Card Sentiments - D1111 (CTMH - retired)
Ink - Chocolate (CTMH), Copics, computer
Accessories - Anitque Copper brads, Flourishes Foundry Access. (CTMH), 1/2" brown satin ribbon (Offray)
Other - 3D foam
