Beer Monster

I was asked to make a card for someone to give to her son on his twentieth birthday.  I always struggle with cards for young men but I thought this digi from Pink Gem would be perfect, it's called Beer Monster and you'll find it here.
 I coloured him with Promarkers to match my lovely new Papermania Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection papers.  I loved the pastel collection when it came out and I love the brights just as much.  I inked the edges of the mats with black ink and stamped a sentiment with a Papermania stamp.  The three buttons are also from the Spots and Stripes range.
To embellish, I added some bright red grosgrain ribbon, a spotty brad and some American Crafts Thickers numbers.
