Thursday Throwback at the Farm

... The Greeting Farm that is... :-).
Today it's Thursday Throwback, a day when we blog about an oldie but a goodie :-).

{{{PLEASE SCROLL DOWN For info on TGF's SPONSORSHIP of the PLAYDATE CAFE Challenge-we are collaborating with them and are VERY excited about it!  Thanks}}}

And when I started browsing through my papers, I just couldn't resist the jazz theme paper and that's the reason I chose the lovely Friday girl from the Creepin crew. I just love her!!!

So this card is sort of a fusion between the old and the new in music... I'm almost imagining Friday as Scrary Spice from the Spice girls... :-).

I also had an idea of tearing the papers up in order to create a fun frame. And since I couldn't bring myself to messing too much with the jazz paper (from Graphic 45 - Curtain Call), I decided on highlighting that instead with a notes and corrugated paper frame.

I also put in a ton of roses, just to try the technique out. And it was fun. I'd also recommend you to use a glue gun to fasten them, because boy, do they stick!!!

And here they are at the downer part of the card:

All the best to you.
And please do try this technique out. It's really fun, and interesting above all :-).

Here's a tutorial on how you can do this...
