Back to the 80's!

I have made this card for 2 challenges.

Stampin' for the Weekend #22-Back to the 80's with a twist
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential #5-In so many words

For the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge you had to use blue, orange and purple and pick one of their three songs listed on their blog for inspiration. I picked Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cindi Lauper. I printed out the lyric to the song on my computer. The stamp is Penny Black that I colored with Copic markers. I made the frame by using a Martha Stewart punch. I think it looks like Madonna lace! I added a flower, ribbon and bling. Thanks for stopping by!
