Summer Man Card

Good morning everybody :)

Hope everyone is well and happy :) I made this card for my parents to give to a relative who had their 50th birthday recently. They asked me for something with a bit of humour so this is what I came up with :)

The image and sentiment are from the wonderful Bugaboo, the ribbon and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the flourish is a Cheery Lynn flourish, the gorgeous little sailboat charm is from Ribbon Girl, the papers are Bo Bunny and DCWV and the rest is from my stash.

A closeup of this funny guy, coloured with Promarkers. I added Glossy Accents to the beachball, bucket and spade and his glasses.

A closeup of this gorgeous little charm. I've had these guys a while but never had any images to use them with til now :) 

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking :)
