Epic Celebrations - Like, Totally 80's Style!

I'll go ahead and be honest with you.  I took a beautiful color combo and went a little funky with it!  I needed a fun birthday card for my downline, who just happens to be born in the 80s, so I decided to make a totally rad card using the color combo from Global Design Project and the sketch challenge at TGIF Challenges!

I really like this Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Epic Celebrations.  It's great for teenagers and even the music fans.

I like the pop of black with the color combo so I added some Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon and some Basic Rhinestones (colored with a black sharpie).  I also wanted to add some guitar strings with Basic Black Metalic Thread.  I saw Cathy Caines make a similar guitar and I had to try it.  Glue Dots were a great adhesive for these pesky little strings!

For the inside, I used the other sentiment from the set and carried over the Tutti Frutti DSP and stamped Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I also used more of the Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon.

Totally awesome, right?


Have a fun rest of the week!
