Helloooo Babeee!

Day 191 - Musical Monday

I'm trying to not get too far behind on the daily challenges at 365 Cards, only a day behind so far :) Here's my submission for Monday's challenge which was to be inspired by the song "Chantilly Lace." Some other people had used a phone and I thought this was cute as I think he's talking to a girl on the phone in the song (the beginning of the song may be a phone ringing but it sounds an awful like sleigh bells to me!). So I had the image and found the layout challenge (SSC115) from Stamping 411 yesterday so that part was covered, but what about those pesky colors! Did an on-line search for "colors from the 50's" and ended up finding this which was my inspiration. YEAH! Only took about an hour from start to finish including finding the inspiration! That's phenomenal for me! So here are the deets:

  • Papers: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Whisper White and Rainbow Sherbet DSP...oh yeah, that funky looking rectangle in the middle (vertically) is a silver metallic paper embossed with the dots and diamonds folder from Sizzix. What you are seeing in the bottom portion is my reflection! hehe!
  • Stamps/Sentiment: Phone is from the SU! set "On the Move". I covered up the "call anytime" part when inking so I just at the phone image. The sentiment is computer generated in a "fabulous 50's" font.
  • Embellies: The turquoise ribbon is from Mikes and the black is from Wally World

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful "hump day"!! Aloha!

Hmmm, you could have asked me about the colors of the 50s but I probably wouldn't have remembered! LLOL! Turned out great using the phone. And I can almost see what my daughter looks like! Lovek, SAM aka MOM

Super cute! Love it all - I could hear the 50's radio dj in my head when I was looking at your card. Great job!
