Simon - Cool Dude

Good evening fellow crafters and lovely followers.  Yippee, Thursday again and my weekend starts,  Is it just me or are these weeks going quickly!
Now I am not one for making men's cards, I do find them very difficult so when I saw this digi stamp called Simon from Mo's Digital Pencil I just had to have it.   
I used my copic ciao pens to colour him in and he is a delight to colour.  I then diecut him out and stencilled around the edges using marmalade distress inks.
The backing paper was from my crafty stash and I think it was from a magazine, Making Cards.  I matted my backing paper onto some beautiful orange pearlescent card which I also used as a mat for my sweet Simon.  I embossed a strip of white card using a brick effect and made a sort of bookmark which I distressed again using marmalade distress inks.  I added a sentiment which has been stamped but I can't remember where that stamp came from.  I then finished it all off with some card candi.
Hope you like.  Thanks for stopping by.  Do take care and see you all soon I hope.
