Hello, Handsome

This card was so fun to make.  My partner is a silly dork whose love of me, donkeys and squirrels knows no bounds.  Like I said, silly.  I definitely tailored this card to him.  Ridiculous donkey on a wobble on his fav color.  I wish Valentine's Day were tomorrow I so want to give it to him now now now!

Fun fact:  the carrots are washi tape.  I was originally going to sew carrots (tapered zigzag stitch) then discovered I didn't have anything even close to orange thread.

The Details:  Spectrum Noir EB5, EB6, IG3, IG4, BG4, BG5, EB1, EB2, CR2, GB1, GB3; Paper Source Chartreuse cardstock, Bazzill Soft Stone cardstock, Hero Arts Operation Write Home sentiments, Papercraft Essentials image,  Memento Tuxedo Black and Love Letter, Stazon Black, washi tape, Martha Stewart branches punch, MFT Pierced Circle Die

I'm entering this in Simon Wednesday Let's Have a Laugh, Sentimental Sunday #191 Lovey Dovey, Pink Elephant TPE235 Love, Dream Valley #74 No Designer Paper, OLLCB #148 A Man Card, Crafter's Cafe #47 Very Funny, Totally Gorjuss #220 Furtastic, Totally Papercrafts #203 One for the Boys, Charisma Cardz #2 It's a Boy Thing, Card Makin Mamas #79 Move It! and Twisted Tuesday #68 Give Me a T.A.P.E (alcohol markers).
