Phindy's Friday Challenge




TGIF! Time for another Phindy's Friday Challenge! The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is make a project based on a favorite song or movie. Pretty easy and versatile challenge, hope you will join us.

For my song choice I went with Elvis! My dad has always been a fan, and I think it has rubbed off on me. Elvis' Can't Help Falling in Love, is what I based my card on. Perfect for an anniversary card I think. Here are the lyrics if you aren't familiar with them:

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you




I went with Together for my image this week. I'm always so fond of images that show the backs of people, just love them and this one is no exception. Such a sweet and tender image.  Phindy has lots of great images in the shop that would work out perfectly with this challenge.

Hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the DT has created this week. Play along with the challenge to win some prizes. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is some pretty good incentive! 

My sketch comes from The Pink Elephant Challenge 154.
