Stampin For The Weekend # 22 - Back To The Eighties (with a twist)......

Morning peeps!

I'm back with a card for the Stampin For The Weekend Challenge..... this week it's themed on some songs from the eighties and I chose 'Dirty Laundry' by Don Henley..... the extra theme is to use the colours orange, blue and purple. Now I wouldn't necessarily put these three colours together but then that's why it's a challenge....... and I really like how it worked out. The reason I chose the 'Dirty Laundry' song is because I knew I had this Hanglar image lurking in my stash..... great fun to colour and lots of fun!

I used Prima flowers on my card and my new MS oak leaf punch. The papers are oddments from my stash and I coloured my image with Poly and Koh pencils. I'm trying to remember the make of the scrabble letters I stamped for my sentiment, can't just check because I'm at work so I'll add this info later when I get home.

Before I go I would just like to say a huge thank you to Juls for giving me this brilliant award ;o)

Oi, I feel 21 in my head anyway :D and just when I was up to number five of your Christmas tree stars ;D!! Love your card T and your little Hanglar girls is gorgeous, beautiful colouring too, I really like these colours together! The scrabble letters are brilliant, I'm looking forward to finding out who makes them. I hope she's putting clean washing on the line and if she is, can I borrow her? Thank you for the award, you made me smile and made my day! I'll blog this tomorrow with my answers.
