Prairie Fairy Challenge "Inspired by a Song"

Good Afternoon Ladies, last week I won Prairie Fairy Fridays Challenge and I was asked to create a card as a guest designer, and their theme for this Challenge is "Inspired by a Song" and Ive used this gorgeous image of a chap and his dog fishing from Roberta of Prairie Fairy and used it to illustrate Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong's "Gone Fishing" duet, I know Im a bit sad but it was quite a favourite in our house at one time, anyway Ive printed it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, then used the large curved retangle die from Nestabilitie to cut it out, then drew around the edge to create the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and three papers from Donna's Bearlymine Designs "For the Men" papers the first one is a striped paper in several colours, the second is a large spot one, and the third a green small spot one, on top of this Ive stuck my mounted image and my sentiment which was created on the computer and then cut out with my rotatrim below on the left hand side.
I do hope you will pop over to Prairie Fairy's blogspot and see the fabulous creations from the rest of the girls.
