It's A Quirky Sketch!

This is my DT card for the Quirky Craft's Challenge starting again, after a Summer break, over on the challenge blog as I type! (you big fibber Lyn!) Shh! The challenge this time is, of course, and those of you who popped in earlier will know, is a nice and very easy...
Pop over and have a look at the other DT makes. Caro has made a fun day out, and has included a fab picture of her sliding down a helter-skelter and some Storm Troopers from Star Wars! And Anne has made a beautiful scrapbook page featuring Phil, her late hubby, both great scrapbook pages. Cazzy and I (because I'm completely rubbish at scrapbook pages) have made cards. Now, you of course, can make anything crafty you fancy. You can flip it, tilt it, add a few extras, so long as we can still see that you've followed the sketch. Easy!
I've used a Penny Black image kindly stamped out for me by Fe-Fe a trillion years ago, who used to design for Quirky (thank you Fe-Fe) I know it's from Fe-Fe because it has her name on the back!
I've used chalk inks and ProMakers to colour and also some inks to rough up the edges of the papers a little. I've used Pink Petticoat papers from The His & Her Collection disc (this one was the His Collection) and both papers are blueberry and putty (one blueberry with putty dots and the other putty with blueberry dots) The sentiment I did on the computer in Word. The lovely large brad is from a set of 15 by Pepper & Friends, from TrimCraft. The font is a freebie, Apple Butter, already mentioned ages ago, but if you missed it, you can download it HERE.
I added the red raffia to match the red flowers, the little Ladybirds and the tiny red heart on the mouse's envelope. I've not added anything else other than some eye-lets as this card will probably be put by for a dad, (shh!) and seeing Penny Black Saturday Challenge are doing a card for Men/boys this week, I think it might just fit in, although I am very tempted to add some flowers in that empty space! But then, with my dad, being a gardener, that doesn't really matter!
Hi and a big (((wave))) to two new followers, one I missed yesterday, Bits4Crafts, no link here but I think I've found you here! and SallyH from Sally's World! I love those cupcake cards!
That's it from me and that's it from I and myself, we'll see you all later...
