Start the New Year with a Laugh!

How can I resit not to join in with this weeks Dottie challenge which asks to:

"Start the New Year with a Laugh"
I simply want to see "something funny" on your project, what you use and how you make it is up to you. Oh and of course you must use one of the Charmed downloads.

I'd already printed some Vegas George images ready to colour, but my attempt just did not look right, so I ended up printing one of the pre-coloured images instead. George has been layered onto a very shiny glittery gold star, which in turn has been layered onto a rough ripped star (edges have been lightly inked and chalked). I printed a computer generated sentiment and used 3d foam pads to give it a bit of lift. The red bead heart has red raffia pushed through and then fanned out - just something a little different! The red raffia ribbon is also across the top of the card. I've doodled around the edges of the card too. I've gold glittered the buttons on Georges' jump suit but because I didn't wait until it was dry until I took the photo, it looks a bit naff. Ah well!
  • Backing paper: Pink Petticoat Doodle-icious Rainbow Collection
  • Image: Pre coloured George
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Embellishment: Made by me with heart bead and raffia
  • Raffia: Tescos (Christmas parcel stuff!)
