There must be a mistake surely?

I demand a recount!

This card is for my Mum and Dads Cousin he is going to be 80 soon and they asked me to make a funny card.
I showed then this awesome image called Gus from Bugaboo and they thought it was a scream! so off I went to play!
Papers - Echo Park
Buttons – Marianne designs
Robins nest – Gems – neglected
I Paper pieces his clothes and added some distress ink shadows, stardust pens and Glossy accents on the Balloon and his glasses, C&S I think I am getting the hang of C&S?
I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday I missed the challenge Doh! But still wanted to use the fabby sketch, thanks Sketch Saturday :0)

  10. Where to begin! This had me on the floor! Awesome paper piecing you've done Samantha and the sentiment is perfect. I had the biggest giggle over that poor deflating balloon just barely hovering over the ground..LOL.
