Manly HB card w/TAWS

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Easter!
It is not my DT day over at The Alley Way Stamps but I could not help but make a card using one of the new release stamp sets for this month. It is actually the mini set that you can get for free just by placing a minimum order :)
Make 'Em Laugh
Using that set and the sentiments from these~ Wish BIG (also an April new release) and Words to Live By
the sketch from this week's

I came up with this....
How funny is this??? I just love this stamp

Here is a close-up of this silly guy. I paper pieced his hair and glasses and added some glossy accents to the inside of those to make them look more like glasses.
I wanted the sentiment to take up some of the white space next to him so I die cut the letters "h and b" using My Creative Time~ Lowercase Fun Dies and then stamping the rest using the new Wish BIG stamp set.
The "handsome" that you can see in the top picture is from the Words to Live By set and to add some extra manly touches to this I stapled that onto the image mat.
 The nose was colored using my copics and I popped the glasses up using foam dots.
Finally the designer paper that I used for this card is from Studio Calico~Darling Dear collection. Such a GREAT mix of colors and patterns in this paper stack!!!

Well that is all I have for you today.
Hope you all have a GREAT  Easter and thanks so much for stopping by!!
