Crafting When We Can Challenges 41 - Name That Tune

The Challenge for this fortnight was a fun one to do.  As soon as I saw this image in the sponsors shop I knew what song I wanted to do.  We have a new sponsor for this challenge


Name That Tune

Image:  Run Derek Run

For my card this week I used one of my shaped cards (I never use these but this is how much I looked forward to this challenge).  I made my own backing paper using a background from CraftArtist (Butterfly Elegance ) and an image from My Craft Sudio.  The backing paper was a bit of a pain to cut out which is why it just does fit quite right around the edge but as this card will eventually be received by my from my OH it doesn't really matter (yes I have to sort out my own cards and presents or I don't get them, usually sometime he really surprises me).  Nest time I will draw around the card and cut the paper on my Craftrobo, so it will hopefully fit better.  I coloured my image using Promarkers and Copics, matted it and my message onto blue card, popped up on 3d foam.  I added 3 buttons, trying to keep with the colours green, orange and yellow, used blue and white twine in the middle of each.  All the edges were coloured with Ocean Spray DI.
