Birthday Boy

For this card I started with a 7" x 7" card. I then printed off one of the sheets from "The Big One Decoupage CD Rom" which gives a back ground and some decoupage. I cut some acetate so that it fitted the front of my card with enough down the left hand side so that I could wrap it around the back of the base card and attach it with double sided tape. I matted the background onto some card that I had punched using a Martha Stewart border punch and put this on the front of the card underneath the acetate. I then cut out the decoupage of the chap sitting on the barrel. There are two views, front and back so I layered the front view onto the front of the acetate and then added the rear view onto the inside of the acetate (see below).

I then added the sparkly numbers as this is for a big birthday and edged the acetate with the same colour so that it stands out.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
