Mousy High STakes Poker

Hi, well it is July so you know what that means,
it is time for the start of a new challenge at the 
The Crafty Awesomeness Challenge will run for the 
entire month of July and the cool part is you can enter the
challenge with anything that you have created, card, layout, picture
quilt, etc etc you get the idea.  
This month our sponsor is 

I was lucky enough to get this cute image to work with.

The reason I was excited to have this image to work on is because
once a week (most of the time) we get together and play
nickel poker.  Mostly on Friday nights we go out to dinner and then come back to our house and play poker.  There are 6 on us and it is all brothers/sisters  
and their other halves. 
It is always a fun night and sometimes I think we laugh more
than we play.  
So here is the card I created using the High Stakes image.
I struggled to try to figure what I wanted to color him with and finally decided
on my Copic markers.  
The papers are digital papers from Tactile-Studio formerly Sassy Designs.  I love their digital papers and they always seem to have
the correct designs for the theme I want to go with.    It's funny cause I have
a room full of papers and then here I go printing paper, oh well you 
gotta do what ya gotta do. LOL 
I used my Gina Marie stitched circle dies to cut the circle.  I love 
Gina Marie dies and they are so reasonably priced.  
If you love cutting dies you really should go check out her stuff.  
The black pointy circles I cut using my Cricut Explore.  The
small oval with the sentiment was also cut and written using my Cricut Explore. 
Well, that's my card and I am sure one of our poker clan will be 
getting this card for their birthday.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure and head over the
Crafty Awesomeness Challenge and enter your creation.
