Fifties Fun

Afternon from a cold and chilly Warrington.  We have blue skies but boy is it cold out there today.

I haven't done any CD crafting for a while and I decided to make a card using My Craft Studios Fab Glam Fifties CD.  The images on these discs are fabulous and all were done by the lovely Nancy Watts.  My Dad was a teddy boy and mum was a teddy girl.  They were really good dancers and dad even won a competition back in the 1950's for his dancing.  I love rock and roll and only wish I could dance like that!

The base card is from Hunkydory.  The backing paper is from the above mentioned CD using the graphics programme I have resized the backing paper to fit the card then added the two figure, sign and records.  I copied and pasted the records and figures and decoupaged them to give this card dimension.  I have glittered the frill of Lori's dress.

Thank you for stopping by today

This really does capture the feel of the 50's (although I was far too young to remember! lol)
