Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Bugaboo Stamps

Soooo, Wednesday has rolled around again, which means that it is time for a new challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and this week we are sponsored by (drum roll please):

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

And we have an amazing sketch for you to create with this week, designed by Arlana: 

The grand prize is 7 free digistamps from the Bugaboo store.

Anyway, without further ado, here is my creation:

I have made this with my gramps in mind, as it is his birthday soon, but whether he gets this card or not remains to be seen.  As is usually the case with me, I might make him another, or I might sell this one and need to make another.

I thought this image was perfect for my gramps.

I coloured him in with promarkers and backed him onto some red paper.  All papers are from a Wellington pack, which I often forget I have, but is always trustily there for man cards.

The blue twine is actually some wool I had lying around on my craft desk.

I struggled with the embellishments this week and could find no inspiration in my stash, so I cut a strip of the red stripey paper into squares.

I can't wait to see what you all create this week.

Happy Crafting!
