Polka Doodles have a challenge currently for an age related birthday card. I have disobeyed all the usual rules for aesthetics and it shows BUT I love this image and I am enormously grateful to Mo Manning of Mo's Digital Pencil for allowing me to alter an image to suit this birthday card for my widowed American Uncle who will be 90 on Sunday and whose card is going to be very late given that the last Christmas post for the States was ages ago.
Mo's absolutley fabulous "Darn It" image and I could see that he would make a good card player if only he wasn't sewing!!! I e-mailed Mo and asked if she would give permission for me to alter the image and she oh-so-kindly agreed! I am really pleased with how it turned out. It took me forever to make the accompanying embellishments because my playing cards looked grey and having put my Stampin Up paper, the image, the Fiskers sentiment and the other bits and bobs together, my card isn't quite balanced but I'm sure my Uncle will like it anyway - just on the basis of the image!
