Oh my ears and whiskers…

It’s challenge time over at PunkyouGirl and it’s an easy peasy one of ‘anything goes’ and I’ve used a great image from our sponsor, SLS Lines, called Goth Girl and Rabbit.

To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at Retrosketches.  I just swapped out the butterfly element for my image and mounted my sentiment on a Tim Holtz Tattered Curvy Scroll.  I’ve kept the embellies and papers fairly toned down, one, as this is a ‘darker’ project in the PunkyouGirl style, and, two, I’m thinking this for a male card.

As I’ve got a die cut and the card would suit a male I am entering it in the current challenge at ScrapbookerPhD.  The inside of the card finishes the sentiment for a belated birthday card.  And yes, its supposed to be slightly cheeky with a nod toward the Playboy bunnies given her somewhat provocative pose and as it is for a male.

Now over at Open Minded Crafting they have a theme of ‘new year’s resolutions’ for their current challenge.  Mine is to be on time with my cards this year so how does a belated birthday card fit that theme?  Well, if past years are anything to go by where I’ve made similar resolutions to be on time with my crafting are anything to go by I am going to be raiding my stash for this card when I realise I’ve missed one of my male friend’s birthdays.  I’ll then be glad that I made this resolution and started off so well in having a card at the ready so I’m not quite so late!
