Thieving swines!!

Afternoon, I planned to have a card up for you this morning, but OH left late for work last night so only got time to craft this morning inbetween the police coming out and everything else!! Someone broke into my car last night, they took the stereo facia (the bit which is removable) and left the stereo, they also noseyed in the glovebox but took nothing else? Go figure, not sure what they want with a 10+ year old stereo facia LOL ... if I catch them I will chop their bloody fingers off! 

Anyway keeping in with the stealing topic ... I totally loved this card by the cleverly talented Caroline. So I emailed her asking if she minded if I copied her idea and she agreed that I could and was flattered that I wanted to!! (Thanks Caroline!) so I set to and cut out the buttons and glossy accented them to give them some shine, I then raised them up on 3D pads! Quite happy with the end result, although it looks a lot better in real life! 




I inked up a craftwork cards sentiment in green and added it. 

Hope you like it. 

Whilst I am here, remember tomorrow is the fabulous new release from Ladybug Crafts Ink and we are having a blog hop to celebrate!! The new images are just so gorgeous so you won't want to miss it!! 
Grab the banner from me here, and join in the fun tomorrow!

I loved this card when Caroline did it and you so totally have done this one justice - Fantastic card!

Sorry about your car - like your method of justice though - have you thought of running for parliament? I'm sure we'd have less crime LOL :)
