IAAS Use Humour

This time at International Art and Soul we've got a fun challenge for you, set by Jeanette, and it's 'Use Humour'. I started off eagerly with this challenge and had the card finished just waiting for the humour and that's when my inspiration disappeared. I even sent texts to my two sons and daughters in law asking for ideas and they couldn't come up with anything either so it was back to the drawing board.

I eventually settled on a Bugaboo image of Stella which I've had for a while, I used my Promarkers to colour her and then cut her with a Spellbinders oblong die, matting it on to a red scalloped oblong/rectangle. I decided to use a DL card, from Craft UK, as the shape of the image seemed to cry out for it. I used a fine point on my red Promarker to draw lines across the DL card blank as the background. Once I'd decided that was OK I added the matted image. The sentiment, supplied with the Stella image, was generated on the computer and cut with smaller Spellbinder dies before setting at an angle across the bottom of the card. The only embellishments were three red gems, from Hobbycraft, in the top right of the image. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
