Hi everyone!
I have the great honor of being this month's guest designer at CAS on Sunday .
The theme is: Boy / Male card and it has to be CAS

This challenge is really well timed because I needed a birthday card for a man this week.

The idea for this card was inspired by a quote from Charlie Chaplin 
...and of course Charlie had to be on it too!

Charlie is composed of one of Katzelkraft's Pabos, an umbrella from which I only took the carrying stick, a hat from AALL&Create and a die-cut bow tie from Scrap Plaisir.
Everything is watercolored, cut out and glued together.
I painted him eyebrows, his typical mustache and a few curls of hair.

Oh, there were also his feet! I cut them off and glued them closer together.
I sponged the background in yellow on the left and stamped over it with a stamp from Kaisercraft.
I actually have a stamp for Charlie's quote in English, but the dear man for whom the card was intended is French and not quite so young anymore. So I made small labels in French and glued them on.

I think you've already guessed which quote it is...
"A day without laughter is a day wasted."
