Polka Doodles Challenge - Fathers Day/Male Theme

Good morning folks, it's time for the next Polka Doodles challenge and this week's theme has been chosen by Dee. As it the day for all those dads on Sunday, Dee would like to see something for Fathers Day or male themed and what you make is up to you.
I've just realised that it's a week since I last blogged, unfortunately having been very busy with my work and no time for crafting! That will change over the weekend though as the new Polka Doodles CD comes out on 27 June on Create and Craft TV and Nikky has been working very hard to get all the new images over to the DT so that we can make samples for the show.
Anyway, back to this week's challenge and I've made a very vintage style card on a music theme.
I was inspired by a certain musical which came straight to mind when I saw these gorgeous grungy, vintage style papers on the Not For Girls CD in the Sounds Good section.
My card is very simple to make. I resized the music background paper and printed it on the right side of a piece of A4 card which I scored and folded in half to make my card blank. I then resized the jazz player twice and printed this out. I cut out the whole panel of the smaller on and matted this on dark red card with a wide border at the base. I added 3 tarnished silver star brads on one side. I then cut out the larger jazz player round the image and added him with foam tape. I assembled the card as you see with some cut out music notes from the instrument sheet and text printed with a Dymo.
You have until 12 noon on Sunday 27 June to upload your creations and good luck if you decide to enter. Don't forget to have a look at the other DT creations as there's some fabulous stuff there.

Fabulous card Fliss - ideal for Father's day or male birthdays (I always struggle with those)!! Love the distressed shade of red with the black and white - it looks so classy.
Hope you manage to get all those sample cards made - I will be watching (or recording) the programme.
Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
