New Style For Me what do you think?

Hi girls so i got a little confused yesterday and got the Polka doodles challenge wrong read the post too quickly silly old me.Anyway I have made another card to enter the challenge but not sure what I think as I don't usually tear or rip the paper.Right the challenge was to use the free download bundle and make a card using the download plus a theme of dimension and texture.
For my card I decided to use a stamp I have had for some time but has been a little negleted its from a set called Ethel and Murray 2 very humourous set lol the sentiment is also from the set which I think is quite funny.There are loads of wonderful elements to the free downlads and I chose to take a piece of backing paper which was originally white with the text and used a brilliance triple inkpad to chance the colour( its a shame you can't see the pearlyness of the ink) then for added texture i tore the edges which is something I don't normally do.For Murray himself I decoupaged him but only one more layer to add dimension popped him on a nesties matt and added the text with foampads again to add more dimension.Murray has been coloured in with promarkers (as if you couldn't guess)lol.
Anyway ladies I am entering this crazy little card into the Polka Doodles challenge and what a great prize they have for the winner and top 5 so please wish me luck I think I am going to need it with this one lol
speak to you all soon

P.S Debs I hope you had a great birthday hun x

Fantastic card Lorraine. The paper tearing and the stitching detail is fab. I think the image and sentiment is great. Good luck with the challenge and have a good weekend. :-) xx

Out of the comfort zone is always interesting -
I know exactly what you mean about tearing - can't quite get the hang of it myself. That inkpad was a brilliant idea (sorry about the pun - didn't realize until I was typing it). Have a good weekend.
