Happy Birthday from The King

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!

Here is my card for today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS, IC211, FabulousStationary! What a great site!! I was inspired by all the graphic, abstract designs in THIS catagory!

My mom asked me to make a card for her friend's Birthday. She is an avid Elvis fan, so I pulled out this Stamp Camp image I have had FOREVER, called Double Trouble.

I stamped Elvis four times in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored each one with Copic Markers, reversing the colors on the backgrounds and his jacket.

I wanted to keep in line with the abstract look, so I went with all primary colors, which is totally out of my comfort zone!

The polka dot paper is from Early Bird by Cosmo Cricket. I LOVE how the polka dots look with all the Elvis blocks!!'

I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to each of the four corners, and they are the only embellishments on my card.

I did finish the inside of my card...I needed to put "Happy Birthday" somewhere right?? A strip of the same paper inside makes it cohesive with the front, and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the new Holiday Tags set from There She Goes.

Thank you...thank you very much (lol!) for stopping by!!!
