Prince Tribute Cards

It's been a long time since I've posted anything.  I've still been making cards.  Finding time to get them on my blog has been a challenge.  I made some cards last night and want to share them.  These are special to me because I made them as a tribute to one of the most amazing musicians of all time....Prince.  His passing last week has brought back so many memories of the great times I spent with my friends listening to his music.  

I drew inspiration on the layout for the first card from this week's CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  The placement of the sentiment is a little lower than on the sketch but the sketch inspired me so I'm including this card in that challenge.  

CAS(E) This Sketch #169

The second card was inspired by this week's sketch at The Paper Players.  Again I ended up going a bit off the sketch but I think you can see on both of these cards where I drew the inspiration.

For my Favorite Teenager

The card I have today is one layer and extremely clean and simple:

A couple weeks ago my daughter turned 13.  This is such a big milestone for us.  She's a TEENAGER.   I made this sentiment special for her birthday.

I'm playing along with the Seize the Birthday Tall and Skinny challenge this week.  You can find the challenge here:   Seize the Birthday Tall and Skinny challenge

Something BIG is about to happen....

In a few short weeks my baby girl is going to be a teenager.  Not only is she going to be 13, we're celebrating three 13th birthdays in the family.  I'm going to need to have some special milestone birthday cards ready.

I used the layout from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch and the colors from the Just Us Girls color theme.  It's black & white + one color - I used gold.

Peachy Keen, Jelly Bean

Today I have a Peachy Card to share with you.  For some reason it made me think of the quote "Peachy Keen, Jelly Bean" from Grease.  It's kind of fitting since the color is peachy and jelly beans are plentiful at this time of year.

To create this card, I ran white cardstock through the cuttlebug with the PTI Linen Embossing Folder, then I stamped the sentiment with versamark and heat embossed it.  I cut the circle frame out of white cardstock and sponged it to get a color close to the card base color.  I stamped the glass on vellum with versa mark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Then I colored the image.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

I'm entering this card in a couple challenges today:
