A "Wild Thing" Valentine

So I began early yesterday playing with the JT cart for the Imagine.  My primary goal was to play with one of the Bonus cuts, the file folder.  As I was playing away I took a break to do a little work on my blog and my good friend Donna had posted to some of my posts, so I emailed her and told her that she had been on my mind as I played with the JT cart and that I would post my work with JT today if I finished.  I then went back to work and kept hearing the words to "Wild Thing" by Jordan Christopher, circa 1965-1966, omg!  It woud not go away, so I just went with it and this is what happened, LOL.  A Valentine for Donna, to tease her into bonding with her Imagine, the one sitting not being played with, the one sad lonely and wishing machine sitting there waiting that she would just push its buttons, can you hear it call, Donna play with me, play with me.  I love Donna's dark side it so moves my inspiration, so here is how it all went down.

Truer color
 The file folder is one sheet and since we only have a 12X12 piece of real estate, I instructed the I to fit it to page, however what happened was that the dimentions go almost to twelve on the height but only to about 8 1/2 on the width.  So I cut it fit to page, then I scored it on the vertical and cut it at 5 1/2 so now we have a file folder that measures 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 and it opens top to bottom, with the index in the middle.  I inked the edges and attached metal photo corners.  The skull was cut at 1.5 with the layers on and is also from JT but I did change the background paper it was on.  I mounted the skull with dimensional dots and put red rhinestones on the background to show through the skull, see next photo for that detail.  The W is QK "Blossom" font.  The hearts are a marvey punch.  I saw that the index "You make everything Grooovy" was crooked and went to change it and then decided it added a little funk to the card and kept it the way it was.
I enhanced the contrast so you could
                                                                see the glowing eyes.

The font for the inside is ITC Juicy.  And with that I wish you a very relaxing and happy Sunday. Hugs

This is just perfect for A Wild Thing theme. I love the colors you've selected, the hearts are fantastic but I do so love that precious lil' skellie sitting to the right. Again, such delight to have you back creating for us to admire.
