Rocking Scalloped Card!

Here is the card I was trying out last night. The idea of the scalloped edge came from the DCWV templates I have seen around lately and I spent the evening working out how I could join the 2 templates together.
I cut my templates using the Accent Essentials cricut cartridge and then stuck the 2 pieces together using acetate and DS tape. I also cut 2 templates in paper to go inside the card to cover the ds tape.
I used Katharina's sketch 26 to decorate the card and used my new Rockstar Sugar Nellie that I ordered recently. This is the first card I have made using this image, thought it would be great for boys cards. I coloured the image in with Marvys and put glossy accents on the guitar. Sentiment from Cuddly Buddly and spirelli shape cut from Accent Essentials cartridge also - really pleased I managed to get hold of this cartridge, I use it quite a lot and there are still lots of shapes I haven't cut yet!
I have given my blog a makeover lately, and thanks to Rach, have now managed to add my signature to my postings ! Just need a makeover myself now, have lost just over 1 stone on WW diet, really pleased as thought I wouldn't do very well over the holidays but managing to stick to it fairly well! Need to go shopping now for some new clothes - any excuse.....
