Frankie's My Fave!

How about an image that could be used on
a Halloween card,
a cheer up card,
or a Birthday card?
Welcome Frankie, who is my favorite image from the new Whimsie Doodles' release.  I started coloring him up and had so much fun with all the rips and tears, not to mention green hair!

Originally I was going with Halloween, but then the sentiment "rough day" came to mind and I just went with it.  I left the inside blank for now, so that I can add something along the lines of "It's tough getting old, Happy Birthday anyway!"?  Feel free to share more ideas :>)
My card is based on Card Positioning Systems sketch #234.
Plus, I also followed the craft itinerary for Desert Island Crafts challenge #15, with dry embossing, a sentiment, dimension (the main image panel is popped up), plus a touch of green (I might have used just a bit more than a touch!).
Details:  Image - (Frankie) Whimsie Doodles, CS - (Pure Poppy and White) PTI, PP - (Oliver & Max and Whiskers) Basic Grey, Embossing Folders - Sizzix, Sentiment - (Harold's Alphabet) Lawn Fawn, Embroidery Floss - DMC, dimensionals and copics.
