One Stitch at a Time Challenge 147

This week at One Stitch at a Time, the theme is Love! That can be a valentine theme, romantic love or any other sort of love you can imagine!

Our sponsor this time is:

And I decided to make a card for my younger son's 21st birthday!

I've used an image from Pookie Designs. It reminded me, not of my son, but of of some of his friends! Always a keen musician, my son took part in many school concerts and band nights, and one band which appeared regularly, included one young man with very long hair who used to bend over his guitar and windmill his hair around in time to the music. It was rather mesmerising, and it became his 'trade mark' as he played some very heavy rock music.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, having cut it using a Sizzix die. I had to hand-cut the outer green layer using the outside of the largest die in the set. It doesn't seem to matter how big a set of dies is, I always seem to want another one ...) The paper is from Papermania, and I finished with a couple of corner swirls, also from Sizzix.

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cards Galore where anything goes,
Artistic Inspirations where anything goes,
Forever Friends where the theme is 'birthdays',
Moving Along with the Times where the theme is 'birthdays',
Papercrafting Journey where anything goes,
The Squirrel and the Fox where anything goes.

Great card Josephine, love the striped paper going in 2 different directions :)

I know exactly what you mean about the die sets, I often use the outside of the larger ones for the same reason. I think it is because I mostly make A5 cards.... just can't seem to do them small.

Love Mandy xxx
