Through the Purple Haze Challenges #59 Anything Goes Optional twist is Wood/chipboard

Welcome to another Through the Purple Haze Challenges!! This week is Anything Goes with an optional twist of Wood or Chipboard!
You can enter the challenge HERE

Our sponsor this week is the wonderful KennyK! The winner will receive 3 digis from the shop!

Here is my card using Kenny K's image "Thumbs Up".

I just couldn't wait to color up this funny guy!!  To me, he was peeking out of a cubbyhole and then when I learned our challenge theme this week was "Wood/Chipboard", it just occurred to me that he was leaning out of a hole in a playhouse. His "thumbs up" is that no girls are allowed and the sign says so!!! Hope you like my card!!!
