Crafty Ann's Challenge No 19 - Friday 16/7/10

Here we are again.  It is time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's.  This time the topic has been chosen by ................... me!!!  I have chosen "Sir Cliff Richard songs".  I know this might sound very hard but here are two places that you can look to gain some inspiration - check here and here.  I shall look forward to seeing what you all come up with.  The Design Team have come up with some wonderful cards to give you some ideas/inspiration and these can be found here.

For my card I decided to go with a 1963 film and song I played a lot of Sir Cliff Richard when I was growing up - Summer Holiday.  I have used three different blue backing papers from Crafty Ann's Digi Store - two from the polished stone collection and one from the mottled stone collection.  The mottled stone collection I stamped in black various Tim Holtz Paris stamps to give it a more vintage feel.  The actual beach scene I coloured in with Promarkers in more subtle/vintage style colours to fit in with the backing papers.  The bus and Athens picture are off the web.  The two guitars and ticket sentiment are also available from Crafty Ann's Digi Store.  The card is finished off with some raffia and some coins from a sheet from Red Hot Bed that I have had for ages and ages and ages.

Can you keep a secret??  The card is all brought together with a lot of love as I thought I would give it to my husband on Tuesday as it will be our 19th wedding anniversary.  For my 30th birthday he took me to Paris, he drives buses (even though he did first drive buses like that after his initial period of being a conductor, the buses are much more modern now) and I love being by the sea and my husband loves to see me happy so that was just the perfect image to use.

This card also fits the following challenges:
