Happy Stinkin' Birthday

This is the card I made for Justin's dad, it's not a manly man kind of card, but I really wanted to use the little skunk from Pun Fun as the last time they were in the US he picked himself up a Skunk Skin Fur Hat that he loves, so I thought it was appropriate. I man-ed it up by keeping black a prominent feature and colouring the flower with Brocade Blue.
The skunk actually has the saying "I stink you're sweet" but when I mounted this set I separated the sentiment from the image by double-mounting it on the end of the block. This way I have a bit more flexibility with how I use the stamps.

As Dawn would say "Love it!". Your colouring of the skunk is fantastic. What a great idea for his card!

Love the DSP and colour combo you have used-sitting here wondering what on earth a "skunk" hat would look like!!

I'm thinking a skunk hat is like what Davey Crockett used to wear????

Great card Zarna, I think it is manly enough.
