Curtain Call Gus

Hey there,  I have my take on The Curtain Call Challenge-August 1, Bow Tie. I did not have a bow tie stamp or die so I used the inspiration photo for the colors, the stripes and I added a twine bow. 
I colored up Gus with Copics using colors in the bow tie photo, cut it out with a SB label die and mounted on foam tape. Then added it to a rectangle to follow the sketch. Since I got some TH texture paste in the mail from Simon Says Stamp, I used it with a Heidi Swapp stencil for the background. While it was wet I sprinkled glitter on the paste. I diecut a SSS word die in black CS as part of the sentiment. I stamped a Flourishes Birthday word on the MFT banner die cut. Twine and enamel dots were added to finish it off. 

This card fits several Splitcoast Stampers Dare to get Dirty Challenges.
