Cards for Men Challenge - No. 8

 Please accept my apologies for the very poor photograph this time.  I will try to get a better one today in daylight and post that as well.  The challenge over at Cards for Men is 'Fancy Folds' by which we mean 'anything other than a basic bi-fold card'.

I chose to try a Step card and used my own measurements to make a 5"x7" card.  You might just be able to see that my Spaceman Tommy is on an acetate 'arm' so that he can zoom across the sky.  This card was very much a learning curve for me and may have another go at it in the future to get a better finish.  Anyway I hope you like it and will pop over to Cards for Men to enter the challenge.

Promised a daylight picture.  here you can see Tommy flying through space.  Please go on over and look at the other DT cards on Cards for Men.

How cool is THIS!!!! I'm so glad you took another picture Donna. It needs to be seen to be appreciated. It's a brilliantly clever way of using an image. I'd never have thought of using acetate. You ARE clever!
