Sorry I haven't blogged for a while. I've been decorating the house and then hurt my back, so everything is taking longer than normal.
I wanted to enter this card though for a couple of challenges.
The card was made from a piece of A4 navy blue card and made into a stepper card using my Hougie Board. The topper and backing paper, Jump and Jive is from the Decoupage Plus section of the La Pashe 'The best of 2012' cd rom. I decoupaged the topper and made a hole near the old man's mouth so that I could insert the stem rose so that it looked like he was holding it in his teeth. I matted and layered the topper onto some black card. The blue gingham backing paper was also matted and layered onto black card. In between the two, I sandwiched an old cd and attached the topper at a jaunty angle. I made the stepper card from card I had in my stash and added card candy to the four corners. The sentiment was matted onto black card and attached to the middle at the bottom of the card. I did originally attach some musical notes to the card, but I wasn't sure about this, so took them off.
The challenges I would like to enter this card for are:-
