The Joke's on YOU at Dude Time Doodles!

For Dude Time Doodles' first challenge of April, we're donning our fake mustaches, flicking our invisible cigars, and bringing out our best jokes and gaffs!

We're looking for projects with a funny sentiment. This is one of my favorite challenges, love laughing through the card gallery!

My card is a humorous birthday card for a man: it reads, It's that time of year again! (I can't imagine saying that to a woman, all equality aside!). Monday was the birthday of Dudeville Hollow's own Boni, but I'm sure she smells as pretty as springtime! Here's to another great year!

I used With You a Merry Chrithmus from Dude Time Doodles/Bonibleaux Designs.

I used Tim Holtz glassine paper for the front and inside, crinkling it to give it an aged look. The chickenwire background stamp is from Raisin Boat, and I heat-embossed it with Stampendous Aged Copper enamel. I added some Stampendous Mica to the background, as well as to the bathtub water.

The base of the card is actual part of a garbage bag box! I sanded it and distressed the edges, but I left some of the original image on the back part, just for fun.

I'm entering this card into the following great challenges:
  1. CES Challenge # 79: No Girls Allowed!
  2. Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday - Recycle/Upcycle
  3. Glitter Geeks: April Fool's Day (humorous)
  4. Paper Take Weekly: Anything goes + optional monotone theme / just one colour range excluding hair and skin
  5. Sir Stampalot April Challenge: Happy Birthday
