The Original

This was a very fun card to create and I made it "original" with the fun background. I stamped my Large Polka Dot background in Fresia ink and then took my vanilla embossing powder and sprinkled it in random spots to create a very "original" background. For the main stamp image I colored it with my copics. I feathered two completely different colors (yellow and green) into each other to create a glow around Elvis.
Topped off with some bling brads that match the squares at the bottom of the stamped image.
This was for today's color challenge on SCS. Some pretty funky colors that I thought suited Elvis well.
Here are the details:
