This is my card for the first challenge at  Janis said Groovy. Okay, I was born sometime in the second half of the 50's so the 60's, 70's were my time but I couldn't come up with anything. I keep singing Feelin' Groovy over and over in my head hoping inspiration would hit. Duh....the song!!! I got on google and typed it in so I could listen to the whole thing. Simon and Garfunkel were so popular back then. The lamppost part just hit me! card!
I did an 8 1/2x5 1/2 card. Bottom pattern layer is 8 1/4x5 1/4, the middle pattern layer is 7 3/4x4 3/4 and the white top layer is 7 1/x4 1/4. I used my Gypsy.
I cut the lamp post from the Heritage cartridge 3 times at 1.50x6.53. I layer 2 pieces and popdotted them to the third which I glued to the card front. I used orange peel stickles in the cut out part of the lamp.
The tulips are the border cut from pg. 99 from the Walk in my Garden cartridge. I cut it 4 times each at 1.60x1.90 and 2.09x2.49. Then I did the shift key and did 2 times each of pink, purple, yellow and orange in each of the same sizes as the border to get my flower colors. I popdotted the larger ones to my card and glued the smaller on top of them. I used 3 sets each on front and 1 for the inside. I punched some butterflies using my MS punch from the patterned papers I used in my layers. Blinged them with purple pearls. What's a butterfly without a little bling huh?!
I used my computer to do the verse from the song: Hello Lamppost What'cha knowin' I've come to watch your flowers growin' Ain'tcha got no rhymes for me? Do do do do Feelin' groovy
I did everything in black at Hobo BT font 16 and the groovy in purple Hobo BT font 26.
I hope you like my card. It was really fun making this one. Kept singing Feelin' Groovy, over and over and over and over..........! :)
