OLW3: Punctuation

Susan Raihala has been doing one-layer card challenges for the past few weeks; this is the first one I've been able to do (in a timely fashion, anyway).
This week's challenge is to use punctuation -- in ink only, no embellishments!  Here's my super-quick take:
Ha! This one cracks me up. The inside, which I neglected to take a photo of, is just an equally-large exclamation point. (Sorry about that dangling preposition.) Both punctuation marks came from an older My Sentiments Exactly clear set, full of over-large punctuation like this. I also used a new SU! set called rough type. Inks are basic grey and crushed curry (also SU). CS is PTI white, and the only extra thing I did was round the corners. 

I could see reusing variations on this design for anyone hitting a milestone birthday -- whether they like it or not!

Thanks for a fun challenge, Susan -- now maybe I'll catch up on the last two!

Enjoy your day.

Oh you are soooooo clever! That's gonna make it real easy to get a laugh out of my ancient recipients, which is most of my recipients.

Thanks for sharing.

This is great! As an aside, I'm glad to be an accountant who lives in blissful ignorance of dangling prepositions or participles or anything of that nature! I also have idea about where to place commas!

This card is great and will obviously (from the comments) be making its way into several mailboxes. I know I'll be using this idea. Thank you!

Super cool and fun card!

This is fab! A question mark that big is also sort of an exclamation mark as well isn't it?!
