Ooh I'm not a happy bunny today! in fact quite an angry little bunny LOL!!! my internet keeps going off. I took a better photo of this card and it won't upload! I thought I would leave it and watch Wimbledon but I have no picture on my telly. The DVD blew up a couple of nights ago and died and it has affected the picture on my telly! I'm waiting for 5amp fuse off Amazon to see if that will fix it. But it's been one of those weeks!! My creativity mojo has gone walkabout, so if anybody sees it could you send it back to me please LOL!!!
The gorgeous image is Lili of The Valley's "Zooming Along" and is perfect for a male card! The paper is from Papermania "A Christmas Carol" and is nice rich design. The sentiment was made on computer and is of course inspired by that wonderful song "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf and so it fits the Challenges 'Bring on The Music' at Lili of The Valley and also 'Inspired by a Song' at Moving Along With The Times. I made the corners and they are supposed to resemble black snakeskin!!! I drew a snake pattern on card and then filled each section with glossy accents. I am quite pleased with the results. I wanted to create the look of very posh car interior? Although I'm not sure the corners work well here. Maybe I should have done just 2 corners but then it looked odd cos they are quite heavy looking.
I used some black ribbon across centre and a 'manly bow' (just for Laurie !!). Finally some 3mm red gems from Anita's Gemstone Wheel. I was going to put a strip of paper with music on across centre but it didn't look right. So decided to stick with Clean and Simple look. I have to say I am not happy with this card. I think I will look back on it and say dis-as-ter!!!
