A 50's sock hop!

Good evening all have just had a fabulous day at the hobby craft show at westpoint, Exeter today and spent far too much money!!  Will show you the piccies of my goodies tomorrow :o)   Today's post is a card made useing the fabulous Kelley kids images, I hope you like it.

The papers were freebies from a magazine years ago and have been stashed in a drawer all this time!,  I have mounted them onto black card and used a Fiskars boarder punch down the side of the top layer.

Side/Inside view

The image is the girl from the 50's party set and has been coloured with pro markers, then cut out and mounted with foam pads.

The sentiment is again forom the 50's set and has been cut out with a scalloped nestie, then inked with blue and pink.  The buttons are from my stash, the swirl is a Marianne creatable and I have used gems from my stash.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by
