Miss Anya & My Guy Ian

The challenge is to design a card, layout, or altered item based on your favorite musical artist, icon, or band. My card was inspired by my favorite… opps, I mean my kids’ favorite music, The Backyardigans. ;-D Ok, I’ll admit it; they have catchy tunes that seem to go with everything! This card is a bashing of the two themes, The Greeting Farm (TGF) and The Backyardigans. Each image was altered and all the circles and letters were punched or cut then glued individually.

Inside of the card features "Tyrone" with a take on his infamous saying "That was an excellent farming adventure, don't you think?"
