Rockin' and Rollin'

Amongst the odd requests I've had for cards this week is one for a 60 year old Elvis fan... it's not often that these requests stump me but it took a lot of searching the internet to come up with this idea. I found this wonderful Elvis sihouette on an embroidery transfer website, traced it onto black paper and used it as the main image on this card. I also used foam pads to give even more of a 3D effect. I'm so pleased with the result, you can tell who it is immediately!





This card fits in perfectly with the challenge this week over at Less Is More - the theme is 'music' and what better than one of the greatest artists of the 20th century!
