Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 22

This is my submission for this week's midnight madness sketch challenge. Click HERE to see the sketch challenge.
I started this challenge with another card, but I didn't like it. When I had my guest designer spot for Clear Dollar Stamps I took advantage of my 30% discount and bought a bunch of speciality brads. One of them was a package of these rifles. I figured I could find a use for them somehow (Hubby is a deputy Warden for the DNR). I went to Archiver's today and found this camouflage paper. Suddenly the ideas started flowing in my head.
The inside, well, Eunice just cracks me up! She's so sassy! I typed the sentiment on my computer.

Stamps: Hollis and Eunice by Art Impressions, Pines by Su!
Ink: old olive
paper: old Olive, chocolate chip (or basic brown?)
coloring medium: copic markers
accessories and embellishments: nesties, cuttlebug folder, eyelets, rifle brad, twine

addendum: Someone asked who this is for. I really had no intention as I was making it. I just wanted to get Hollis out again. After I was done I decided to give it to hubby as an early Anniversary card (ours is in November). He smiled.
