Smiling Playing Cards

Hi everyone

Today I'm sharing a card I made to enter into the following challenges:

Here's the card I made:

For this card, I took inspiration from the song "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers. I made the small playing cards in photoshop elements, printed them out on white cardstock and rounded the corners. I stamped the smiley faces on seperate rectangular pieces of white cardstock, and adhered them to the middle of the playing cards. I diecut the banner, stamped the sentiment on top, and drew a line with a black marker. I adhered the playing cards to a black cardbase with foam adhesive.I slightly curved the ends of the banner shape, and adhered it with foam adhesive in the middle and liquid glue towards the ends, on top of the playing cards.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I love this card! I've checked out 68 cards before yours and I think this is the first one which is clearly inspired by a song. I will be bookmarking this in my Inspiration Bookmarks.
