Lucky Edwin

Hello,
Here's the card I made for my brother 40th birthday.  When we were little, around Christmas time, we would always watch Lucky Luke and Astérix et Obélix.  I thought it would make the perfect card.
Bonjour,
Voici la carte de fête de 40 ans pour mon frère.  Quand on était petit, durant le temps des Fêtes, on écoutait toujours Lucky Luke et Astérix et Obélix.  Je crois que c'est la carte parfaite pour lui.
I wanted the image to pop so I didn't add too much.  The patterned paper is a map which fits great with the theme.  I had a sheet with a playing card but only the "4".  It's not the same, but I handmade the "10" to celebrate his forty years old.  To finish, I added a revolver charm.
Je voulais que l'image ressorte, je n'ai donc pas ajouté grand chose.  Le papier à motif est une carte géographique qui est merveilleuse pour le thème que j'ai choisi.  J'avais déjà la carte à jouer avec le quatre de carreau mais il me fallait aussi le dix pour célébrer le quarantième de mon frère.  Ce n'est pas une réussite, mais j'ai fait l'autre carte à la main.  Pour finir, j'ai ajouté un charme révolver.
I coloured Lucky Edwin and the Golden Creek background with Copics.  I was inspired by this image:
J'ai colorié Lucky Edwin et la ville avec mes Copics.  Je me suis inspiré de cette image:
Peau/Skin E13-11-00-000-R02, Noir/Black C9-7-5-3, Fusils/Guns C7-5-3-1, Blanc C3-1-00-CB, Foulard/Scarf R59-29-24-22, Jeans B99-97-95-93-91, Bottes/Boots E37-35-34-31, Chemise/Shirt Y15-13-11-000, Édifice/Buildings W5-YR18-14-15-12-82, Ciel/Sky Y38-35-15-13-000, Nuage/Clouds W5-3-1-00.

I hope he will like his card!
J'espère qu'il va aimer sa carte!
