Crazy4challenges C3C50 Blog Challenge

I just had to enter this challenge when I saw it. Anyone that knows me personally will know that I love Elvis Presley's music, and the man himself, so when I saw Crazy4challenges C3C50 Blog's challenge for this week, and I saw that the theme was "music somehow on your card", also saying that if you used an Elvis stamp I would get double points, I couldn't resist entering it!

I have had an Elvis stamp for ages, which I bought on Ebay from someone in America, and though I have used it to make cards for friends, I haven't had chance to enter it into any challenges, but now is the time for it to make it's challenge premiere!
The backing paper I used was Hollywood Greats, which also depicted an image of the man himself. I used some dark paper, cut from the Hollywood Greats pack, to back the white card which I stamped the Elvis image onto. Then I sprinkled some Clear Glossing powder onto the stamp, and heat embossed it with my heat gun.
I finished it off with a Black and Gold Happy Birthday peel off.
 I hope you like my card.
