Challenge # 2

Coming up soon is my husband's birthday.  It's a big one, as he will turn 65!  As he ages, Liz and I tease him constantly about his "dress".  He has great trouble putting colors together, compounded now by not being able to distinquish between black and navy--brown and purple--you get the picture!  When I saw this image from Jodie (http://www.bugaboostamps.com/) called Gus--at my age, I knew it was an image that I would use for Jim.  I used cardstock from Papertrey, DP from my stash, Papertrey ribbon, a flower embellishment (unknown manufacturer), and colored this image with copics.  Gus' glasses, beach ball, and pail are covered with crystal effects.  I can't wait for Jim to see this card.  It is perfect for him!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
The challenge was to make something with ribbons.
Challenge DDCC # 70--Summer in Winter.  Gus in his "summer attire" sure fits!
