Punches And Dies

Is everyone enjoying hot August nights. This hot weather is a good excuse to stay inside and enjoy the cool air from the air conditioner. It's also a great time to create a few cards! We are having a great challenge at The Paper Shelter! Our challenge is "Punches and Dies". We want to see your lovely creations using punches and dies. I chose the lovely digi  "Art Deco Charm". I choose a spellbinder's die to set off the 'Art Deco' look. I added some gold gilding to the die cuts and the Thank You sentiment came off a free gift I received in the mail. I am not sure I totally captured the Art Deco look but I had fun trying. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song: The Great Pretender (Freddie Mercury)
Oh yes I'm the great pretender 
Pretending I'm doing well 
My need is such I pretend too much
I'm lonely but no one can tell
Oh yes I'm the great pretender 
Adrift in a world of my own 
I play the game but to my real shame
You've left me to dream all alone
Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal
Ooh ooh yes I'm the great pretender 
Just laughing and gay like a clown 
I seem to be what I'm not (you see)
I'm wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Hi Hun, I do hope your shoulder is now well on the mend, my problems are taking a lot longer to settle, have to go back for a follow up appt in 3 months, I just wish this year was over, had enough of pain and discomfort, I was so looking forward to eating well again, so far not working Im afraid, more likely to suffer with colic and backache to. Your card is just stunning I do love this Art Deco image and youve coloured it so beautifully to. hugs Shirleyxxxx
