I'm On Strike!

Good Morning all!
How's the weekend going??? 
I can't believe how hectic this year has been so far!
Still it's good to be busy, right???!!
So, how about getting busy with this weeks challenge over at 
Here's my little card.

I only have one photo for you today but I think that shows all
you need to see!
The image the DT were given to work with this week is
This image is available at The Crafty Pad Designs
either coloured or uncoloured the choice is yours
for the princely sum of just 59p 
It's a great little image to work with & I went off on a little search
to find just the right papers to team it up with!
I actually found a Digital Scrapbooking Kit
It was a perfect match as far as I am concerned!
I used the papers & elements from the kit to make a card front
using my graphics programme. (A first for me!)
I printed this out A6 size (twice) & added a bit of decoupage for some dimension.
 I then printed, coloured & cut out the ten pin image.
 I attached to the card with foam dots for more dimesion.
The only embellishments I added were some silver Card Candi.
I hope you like it!
Hope on over to The Crafty Pad to check out the other DT projects!
It's always a surprise to see what different result are achieved with the same image!
I hope you can find the time to play along this week in our
