Dude Time Doodles February Freebie Challenge

How is it possibly the second week of February 2012?! Happily, this month's Dude Time Doodles freebie harkens us back to the olden days of romantic wayfarers with Zeke Zoro. Wait till you see what the Design Team came up with!

My card features him in a Reverend Billy-esque fit of public expression:


The center "napkin" is made from a pre-cut DP; I generated the sentiment in SCAL & cut it on my Cricut. I love the name of the font I used to create the "LUV" cut-out: "a Theme for murder"! It was a pretty delicate cut, and I only had one go with it, but it came out fine! I distressed it with my distressing tool. Everything is ink distressed in Red Brick or Tea Dye. The "chalkboard" and rose papers are from my 5&Dime stack. I used by border punch to add the tiny hearts on the rose paper. THe image is colored with SU! watercolor crayons.

Hope you'll grab this freebie and join us at Dude Time Doodles; the prize is a chance to join the Design Team for the month of March!

I'm entering this card for the following challenges:
DYSU #57: Anything Goes + Use your Stash [I've been saving these papers forever...funny that they ended up on the same card! The flowers are also from my stash.]
The Shabby Tea Room Week #100: Photo Inspiration/Food theme + Hearts
