Pizza Eating Gruffie!

I'm currently in a swap called Merry Go Round. There are 6 players and we were all to send in a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image (6) to the host. The host then sends one of every one's image to all the players to be made into a card. Once you have finished all your cards you send them back to he host who will then return your original image back to you that is now made into cards by 5 creative people. One of the images that was sent in was this Gruffie eating pizza. I fussed and stewed over this image not knowing what to do with it. It was looking masculine to me and as you can tell by my blog.......I'm not very good at making masculine cards. I finally came up with this and I am actually quite pleased after all my fussing and stewing over this image. The layout for the card was inspired by a recent sketch on the House Mouse & Friends challenge blog which you can find here.

Supplies Used:
Image Pizza Gruffie by Stampabilities
Cardstock: Bazzill
Printed Paper: Retro Christmas by Deja Views
Sentiment: Impression Obsession
Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities and SU Photo Corner punch
Brads from my stash
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol.

Have a great weekend!
