Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog DT card - #8
Hi everyone, my card today is my DT card for challenge 8 at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog where the theme is "If music be the food of Love".
Now, I've actually been a bit naughty here and doubled this challenge up with a card commission, hoping that as it was a (sort of) musical theme, it might be acceptable. This was definitely pushing it one step too far but the lovely Ann allowed it and I hope that she and the other DT members will forgive me? I promise to stick to the guidelines properly in future girls!
This turned out to be quite a difficult commission for me, my original ideas for a 13 year old girl were dashed when I was informed "she is a tomboy and doesn't 'do' pink or girly, but LOVES Michael Jackson".
I kept wanting to add flowers and ribbons and stuff and had to keep forcing myself to keep it simple. I thought I could probably get away with this gorgeous black and white ribbon though, so that cheered me up a bit LOL!

* 'Typewriter key' circles - Greetings Factory CD
* Backing Papers - Crafty Ann's 'Embossed Stars'
* Ribbon - RAK from my dear friend Barb
* Everything else from my stash
I'm sorry that I didn't get to join in with you all for the last challenge, but I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for this one.
Which theme will you choose, will it be love, food or music, or will you create something totally different to this? I can't wait to find out.
Please check out the cards from the other girls in the DT, who actually did stick to the theme properly!
