Pastels and Ribbons

Happy Friday!  Today we have a new challenge for you at:

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafting When We Can: Name That Tune (Going to California: Led Zeppelin)
Moving Along with the Times: Inspired by Song or Film

I used Led Zeppelin's "Going to California" because of the lyrics "Someone told me there's a girl out there, with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair."  This is one of my fave Led Zep songs.  I used one of our newer images, #555 - Paige, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and paired with some pretty pastel papers from Authentique.  Sentiment is a sticker from SRM Stickers.

I used a skull image from The Octopode Factory, printed on DP and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits (eyes) and a glittery gel pen (teeth).  I tied a pink ribbon around it and added a black ribbon tag, then added a pink flower with a cute Glow Skull center.  Hope you all have a great weekend! Peace.


  1. Love your DB card. I so wish I'd used brighter pastels. Fab skullie, too. Love the Glowskull in the flower and graphic stripes. xxD

  2. Darling DB card, Jenn! Love the design, papers, & coloring! :^)
    Crazy-fun Octopode card--love the papers, image & pop of color! :^)
    Hugs, Penny
