Standing Stones

Every year my husband challenges me to make a "Scottish" birthday card for his dad and every year I have to come up with something different so here's this year's offering.

I pyramaged the image by printing it twice cutting them both to the same size and then trimming half an inch from each side of the top one (was great fun lining it up Not!)

I haven't used any paper on this one the image is layered onto strips of whitewash co-ordinations embossed with the distressed stripe embossing folder and then sanded (boy did that dust go a long way)

I would like to enter it into these challenges:
Truly Scrumptious - sketch
Creative Card Crew - easel card
Donna's Den - Happy Birthday
Lexi's Creations - Something old - the image is of the Callanish standing stones on the Isle of Lewis where the family comes from - if they're not quite old enough the thistles and leaves have been in a box for nearly 3 years as I bought them to decorate my wedding cake but had me to you nears instead lol!
