Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge 40!

I'm so happy I got to play along with Mercy's Sketch Challenge this week!! Hopefully this is the first of many!!
I decided to make another Humorous Birthday card to go along with the Stampalicious Monday Challenge as well!

I got this set from SU! a while back and this is the first time it's seen any ink!! I just love the characters in this set!! I figured he needed some plaid shorts, but now that I look at him, what I really think he needs is some black socks!! Doh!! Oh well...next time!!

I used Garden Green, Bordering Blue and SU! dp. The old guy is colored with copics! I opted for a little piercing as well...that's something I always admire in other cards but never remember to do it on my own!

Anyhoo, I 've had a great day of stamping and now it's time for my kiddos to get home and then I'm off to work!!
Thanks for a great sketch, Mercy!!
