Silence is Golden

This is a quick post as it is nearly midnight and I am in bed with my laptop when really I should have set my alarm and flicked my light off as I have an early start tomorrow. I also notice that my Blogger interface will be changing in a few days, I have put off the inevitable as it took me ages to understand this version which I am still learning!!!! so am not looking forward to those changes. So, if I disappear off the face of the blogging world for a while you will understand why!!

Anyway onto my card, the dreaded Card for a male.......... and I have a few more that I need to inspire myself for coming up. The card I have made takes you back to the golden age of silent movies and made me think of the song "Silence is Golden" which fits in perfectly with this weeks challenge over at sweet stampin challenge blog where the challenge is to be inspired by a song or a film.
Octopode Factory Charlie Chaplin
the main image is Charlie Chaplin from the Octopode Factory which I have coloured with black soot distress ink and the paper has been aged with vintage photo distress ink.
Papers are Graphic 45 Curtain Call using both 12x12 and 8x8. I have die cut sentiment "Lights,Camera, Action", film camera and film frame for my image using my Silhouette Cameo. I have punched out the stars. There is also a little Tim Holtz film ribbon and a stamped Whimsey ticket (attached to camera). I have also decorated the inside of this card. The inside film strip is a sizzix die. Cardbase is kraft cardwith plain black card for matting.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:-
no matter which challenges where this months theme is diecuts and/or punches, this card includes both
and crafts and me challenges where the challenge ends shortly for their theme of birthdays.
Anyway I'll say goodnight and see you soon
