SFTW - Challenge #3

It's Friday whoooo hooo!! and you know what that means another new challenge begins over at Stampin for the Weekends challenge blog.

This week we have a wonderful prize very kindly donated by Simon Says Stamp, $25 gift!!! how fab is that.

Also, many thanks to Sandie for being our Guest Designer again this week.

So for this weeks challenge, which is entitled

"Rock 'n' Roll 60's".

We would like you to base your card around one of these song titles:-

1. Whiter Shade of Pale
2. Time of the Season
3. Please Mr Postman

I decided to go for White Shade of Pale......

...mind you it doesn't look this dark in real life!!! For my card I have used a pale pearlescent grey cardstock and cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder. The image and sentiment, which is SU "Baroque Motifs" firstly I stamped the scroll image with versamark then added silver embossing powder and heat embossed, added quite a few lil gems, plus the sparkly heart and ribbon.

There are so many options with our challenge this week, my lovely fellow DT buddies have come up trumps again, with so many wonderful creations, just take a lil peek for yourselves. Thank you for visiting my lil oasis and hopefully you will be able to join us this week with our challenge over at SFTW.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, luv 'n' hugs xx vicki xx

Vicki I do love this flourish you've used, its simple but elegant and having done your card with the grey and white combo really looks fabulous. I love the wee heart through the ribbon and what a good idea to put the wee gems in strategic places on the flourish. Great interpretation of the song title.
