Keep Calm and paint !!!!

Hi all
.I have spent the last 7 months renovating my new home and that was the inspiration for this card i have made for my Partner ...He loved the card and did see the funny side of it.The theme the Dt had for their weekly posts over at  Craft-Dee Bowz  was to use a stencil .I just had to use the Tim Holtz alterations brick wall stencil on this card ...it was just perfect .I also used a Dr Digi image called Derek Dunderton which i coloured with promarkers and cut out .The papers are from Prima. The dies i used for the brushes are from a set of tools by Marianne D.The keep calm image was found on pinterest.
I also used the many paint chip samples i have collected to make a cute banner....The string i used was from my stash and i used my  Craft-Dee Bowz bow making tool to create the double looped bow with it..It makes perfect bows time after time in many sizes in minutes.
