Laura's Sketch #9

I'm trying my hand at another card challenge! This one was based off Laura's sketch (#9!) from the ever creative 2 Sketches 4 You!

I was inspired by a chat I had with a few co-workers about the upcoming Presidential election (VOTE!) and by those old Verizon commercials ("can you hear me now?" seemed strangely appropriate for this card and those swirls in Laura's sketch were a bit like signal bars on a cell phone).

Here's my card (apologies for the sub-par photography; this is from my phone):This card is 4"x5", with the front a bit smaller so that the stars punched on the back show when the card is closed. The big man is an enlarged version of the little men on the background. He's made of a red transparent overlay I had laying around. The phrases are printed from Microsoft Word and all the patterned papers are from the 2008 Scrapbook Page-a-Day calendar.

Here is another shot of the front:

And a close up of the side:




Thanks for looking!

(btw, your "subpar" phone photography is better than my carefully-staged-really-trying version in similar circs; transparencies are *GREAT* but soooooooo hard to photo! excellent job here!)
