Donald Where's Yer Troosers!

In case you're wondering about the title, this song pops into my head every time I use this image, lol! The card is for my nephew's birthday and I thoroughly enjoyed making it. I've used 3 dps from Crafty Ann's. The tartan is from Collection 1 and I created a torn edge look digitally and printed it directly onto the base card. The other two papers are #4 from the gold collection in the Metallics range and the red polished stone from the brights collection. I created a torn edge look for the horizontal red strip and laid it onto the gold piece before printing. All the gold strips and the red panel I laid out on an A4 sheet in word so that I could get them the right size to cut out. The red panel behind the image is the same paper and I've lightly distressed the edges. The image is Fit As A Fiddle and I've coloured it with a mix of digital paper piecing and colouring. Apart from the tartan for the kilt and the tam o'shanter, I also used a piece of the woodgrain for the violin and added some highlights to it.
The sentiment is part of the FAAF sheet and says"kick up your heels, it's your birthday!" I overlaid the sentiment onto a piece of the gold dp and put the gold frame #2 over this to make a little plaque, adjusting the frame to suit the sentiment. The frame, image and home made 'card candy' have all been added with 3D foam to give dimension.
