For a Guy - Pile It On #11 - Dr Digi

Today at Pile It On we have a challenge that many of your avoid, Cards for a Guy! Well I decided to take it literally and I know many men in my life that would love this card, what guy doesn't snicker over a silly card, especially with a cartoon woman on it? (I don't know many anyway)
This image from Dr Digi reminds me very much of the old English "Seaside Postcard" humor, always a little naughty but you couldn't help but laugh. For my non UK friends have a quick look at Googles Images for Seaside Postcards to get the idea :)

To me the image screamed to be paper pieced and so I kept with strong graphic patterns and I had some fun making it and I love the result.
I hope you do and that you will make a Guy Card and come and share it with us at Pile It On and Good Luck!
