DCM - Song Without Words & Leo's Children in Need Challenge

Oh my What fun! I've had a great time being DCM guest designer and this challenge was the icing on the cake......I would like you to create a card inspired by a song or a carol - it could be for Christmas or not! (you may have got all your Christmas cards done by now...) BUT there is a twist. the words of the song are NOT to be seen on the front of the card. You could leave it to us to guess! Have fun.......

I was a bit stumped at first but then I saw Leo's challenge; to use yellow on a card and make a £1 donation to children in need. So, put the two together and what do you get?........Yellow Submarine of course!

I found the image and printed it out three times and layered it decoupage style onto acetate, I then added a funky flower background inside the acetate card and Voila! Decoupage went funky! P.S I just made this card for fun, I won't be selling it. I'm sure there would be HUGE copyright implications if I did.

This is absolutely stunning - it must have taken ages to do.

As you're not selling it you could always save it till next Septmeber and send it for my birthday - I love the Beatles so it would have a good home here!
