Hello Crafty Friends!

Today is the fifth day of teasers for My Favorite Things. Make sure to head over to Kim’s blog for a full list of designers participating in the teasers today.

Have you been loving all of the previews over the last four days?  I have been – and we have a couple of new A la Modes to feature today!  I used the new 80’s Girl to make a radically bright card. ;)

One of the things I remember from the 80s is the bright colors… hello neon!  So I knew I had to make her outfit bright, very bright!  I paper pieced her sweater from designer paper and colored the rest of the image.  I added additional detail to the stereo using a Silver Copic Spica pen.  The pokey circle poking out from behind the main panel was made using the new Award Seal Die-Namics.  By the way – I love the new Retro Squares Die-Namics so I had to use them again on this card.  I paired a strip cut out from turquoise cardstock with some honeydew baker’s twine.
