Musically inclined

Dawn left a a lovely comment on my card for for the Link Up for Pink, and she also suggested I submit it into this week's Think Pink Dude Time Doodles challenge. What a compliment, thank you! I ended up making a different card for the challenge, with Marlooney images. I love Marlene's humor & her hilarious freebies, and once the freebie time ends her images are available at the Dude Time Doodles/Bonibleaux Designs shop.

I decided to make a set of cards, with my Dude Time Doodles card matched with one for the Make Us Laugh challenge at Cards for Men. Both cards are based on the Week 127 sketch at Sketch Saturdays. For the In Stitches challenge at Sweet Stamping, I added hand-stitching on the mats and machine-stitching on the backgrounds.

Here's the card for Cards for Men:
