ColourQ Challenge #89

Hello everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your summer.  I just can't get over how busy this summer has been!

Here are the colors for this week Challenge #89:

 And here is my card:

I sincerely hope I am not breaking any copyright laws by using Calvin on my card.  I made this for my adult nephew's birthday.  He is a graphics artist and I thought he would find this comic amusing.  Since Calvin is talking about connecting the dots, I went with a dot theme on the card.  I embossed the arrows and Bravo Burgandy with dots and used the EK Success dot punch on the Cajin Craze.  After I punched the Cajin Craze, I then punched out dots in the various colors and glued them behind to add more color and interest to the punched border.The Bordering Blue is embossed with a happy birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder (it is hard to see in the picture).  I hope he likes this card!

I hope you like it too!  Leave your wonderful, appreciated comments below!

Supplies: Cardstock: Stampin Up!, Cactus Pink, other; Punches: EK Success, Fiskars; Embossing: Cuttlebug & embossing folders; Stamp: Studio G; Comic: Calvin and Hobbes from the book Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat

I used Adobe Photoshop to crop the scan of the comic.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and be sure to give the Father's in your life an extra hug!
