Drunken Stampers Challenge #150: Person - Elvis

Good Morning friends! It's Saturday and that means a new challenge is up at the Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog! This week for our Person, Place, or Thing challenge is a person. That person is Elvis!

We challenge you to create a project based on Elvis, music, or you can go all out and combine BOTH! The Tropical Hooters team is up this week and here is what I came up with:

(here is the inside of my card:)

You can't read this without Elvis' southern accent, can you?! LOL! I admit, this challenge had me stumped at first. But when I started looking for Elvis clipart, I came across this image and knew right away what I wanted to do! I started with a white card base and covered the front with glitter paper. After printing out the image, I trimmed the main panel to size and adhered it with foam squares. I stamped the word bubble and thank you, fussy cut, and adhered with more foam squares. I then sprinkled the panel with gold sequins and clear rhinestones. I mean, really, doesn't glitter, sequins, rhinestones and Elvis go hand in hand?! ☺ I printed out the inside sentiment with a font that closely matched the font on the stamp and that was that!

I hope that you get a chance to play along this week with the Drunken Stampers! Please be sure to stop by the blogs of my teammates to see what they all came up with! Have a fabulous day!

Thank you. Thank you very much.
