Dottie's World Challenge

This week over at Dottie's world Nicola set the challenge to use a Charmed Download, ribbon, doodles and aperture/s.
I decided to use the just married car front and reverse images for this one.

The image spins around

To reveal the rear view!

I originally intended to do step by step photos and instructions for this card but it ended up being a real bu**er to make because I used mount board - the cutting literally took hours! If I do a tutorial I'll do a light weight version without the wooden cocktail sticks!

I like how these two images are exact opposites so they could be used on the front AND the inside/back of a card or like I've done with this one.

A very beautiful card - It must have taken you hours, I adore the image and th eway that it spins is devine. A very lucky couple will be receiving this and treasuring it for years to come.
