Polka Doodles Challenge #26

This is a quick post as my head cold is getting the better of me. I finally got up today (Thursday) at 2pm, had a soak, made my card for this weeks challenge and then went back to bed for a nap ! So I am now hoping that Mr Scheduler will do it's thing and post my card for the correct day . . :-)

Nikky gave us a fab sketch to work with and the DT were also asked to use the "Not for Girls" CD. I have wanted to use the music topper set for ages and they fit perfectly with this weeks sketch.

I printed off a page of toppers (different sizes) and used the largest one as my main background and chalked the edges. I then layered a smaller topper onto some black card and chopped up (technical term) another topper into small strips. I chlaked these strips and overlayered them onto the first topper. 2 other strips were layered to form my thingy's (another technical term) in the corner.

The sentiment & star stamps are from my stash. I then finished the card with some doodling around the edges. Quick card as I don't have the patience to sit and concentrate for too long !

Happy Friday everyone and can't wait to see how you interpretate the sketch this week,
