CPS Inspired....

Today's card is inspired by this weeks CPS sketch. It can be found over on the CPS blog, here. The CPS74 sketch is just too cute not to pass up. Here is what I came up with..


Haven't you ever just had one of those days. I think this image just explains it all. It is just too cute. I colored him in with my copics and then I went through my different selection of designer papers and came across a mat pack from DCWV. It was a beach themed set but this one selection had a piece that reminded me of sand paper and I thought it fit this image perfectly.....
Here is a close up of that paper it has a textured feel to it also. The color is just perfect for sand paper too. I used it to frame my image as well as a piece to counter it. I then reached for a piece of creamy caramel to offset the look a bit.

I had to add a bit of ribbon to it as well. I hope this card makes you laugh a bit. The sentiment that House Mouse has created to go with this image is just too cute as well....
I used to marker to stamp it in two different colors... Have a great Tuesday everyone...
