INTAAS Humorous

The theme this fortnight at International Art and Soul is 'Humorous' and the challenge was set by me. Why do I think of the theme before I think of what I can do for these challenges? I'm sure I get a perverse sense of pleasure from the struggle. lol

My card blank is a 7x7 by Craft UK  The brown and pink card is by Papermill. I embossed the brown card with an embossalicious folder from Crafter's Companion before setting it on to a pink mat as the background. I used a Clip Art image of a question mark and printed it in a large size in pink before cutting with a Spellbinder die. The quote is a stamp by PaperArtsy and I bought it a few years ago at Ally Pally and have never used it until now. It was stamped with Memento ink in cocoa which seemed appropriate. I cut it with another Spellbinder die and matted it on to pink card the same shape but slightly bigger before setting it an angle in bottom right.  My daughter in law spotted the stamp at Ally Pally and thought it was funny which prompted me to buy it - she loves chocolate! So - guess who is getting this card for her birthday?

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
