April Fool's Challenge

Wow, April already!  To celebrate, Cards for Men's theme for their first April Challenge is "April Fool's", very fitting!

Our sponsor is for this challenge is Letraset.The winner of this challenge will win a 6-pack of Flexmarkers!

April Fools, yes I fondly remember my son putting ketchup packages underneath the toilet seat ... I don't think I've seen my husband and sons laugh so hard, admittedly, it was really funny!  I'm not sure what they have in store for me today ...

I have had this image from Sassy Cheryl's for a long time and have never used it ... pity really.  This image is called April Fools and unfortunately does not seem to be available any longer.

I colored him up with my Copic markers and added glossy accents to the bells and a few other spots.  I did a bit of paper piercing around the image and used my Spellbinders for the scallop square and pennants.  I used some orange baker's twine for the banner and as an afterthought, I added some bells.  The circle sentiment was a freebie from Articrafts by Rebecca and the birthday sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
