Are you ready for some fun?
I thought so!
Today kicks off another fun challenge over at Papercraft Star. This one is super cool because you can create any type of project you wish based on the lyrics of a song, a movie or book title.
When I started searching my craft room for something to create for this challenge, I saw a new stamp set that I had not yet used - Lawn Fawn's Swimsuit Season. I saw the fun images and an adorable "Have Fun!" sentiment and it totally reminded me of the song, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" from Cyndi Lauper.
As a child of the '80's this brings me back to the days when MTV played music videos and the Atari was the coolest technology invented for a kid. When wearing bracelets up to my elbows and pegging my jeans at the ankle made me the most stylish kid on the block. When Shrinky Dinks were the most amazing crafting project around and the Light Bright could entertain for hours. Sigh!
Now enough nostalgia...onto the card I created!
I added several layers of patterned paper and used a zig-zag stitch to adhere together. Aren't the colors so bright and happy? Makes me want to grab my flip-flops and head to the beach!
And how about that adorable swimsuit and tall glass of lemonade? I think Lawn Fawn has just about the cutest stamps around. How could you not smile when you see them?
I hand-dyed this gorgeous peach colored crinkle ribbon for my card and added some bright and cheerful pins with a resin flower. Fun!
Well that's my take on this week's challenge. Does it fit with the "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" theme?
Now it's your turn to have some fun playing along with the challenge this week! Here are the deets...
Create a project using a song title or book or movie as your inspiration.
For example, use the title, the story/lyrics or a character as your inspiration to create whatever papercraft project your heart desires.
The challenge is open now. You have until Sunday, March 6, at 9:00 p.m. (eastern time) to link up your project at Papercraft Star!
Now get crafty and have fun!
