Retro Chester!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. It's turned very cold here brrrr! I wonder if we will be getting some snow soon?

First of all, I'd like to tell you all that I've shot my first video!!!! It's a craft stash video showing you all my lovely Christmas craft stash and includes paper pads, stamps, digi stamps and dies! It's quite wierd hearing your own voice like that, I'm pretty sure I don't sound like that in my head!! lol. Anyway, you can see my new video here!

Just a quick post this evening and a simple card- I must apologise for the quality of this photo as it's been taken after dark. I might try and redo the photo later in the week if I get the chance.

My sis asked me to make a card for our brother for his upcoming birthday. He's a huge music fan and used to have a Walkman like this so I thought Retro Chester would be perfect for him. I was very lucky to have picked this image when I won a challenge over at Pollycraft.

So I coloured him with copics and added shadows with lyra pencils. The paper is pretty old so I can't remember where I got it. I added a button in the corner and then punched a musical note from blue card and glued that on top, I thought it made it look like a funky matching brad. What'ya think?!

I'd like to enter this into:
Pollycraft Challenge- bingo (image, buttons, punches)
