Rock Star

 Cards in Envy has a Manly Challenge currently going on and I think this card is suitable for a young man who's into rock music, so I'm entering it over there. I used a snippet of turquoise cardstock for the SU! "rock star" image, then fussy cut it. I layered it on a larger star done with a Sizzix star die, and added some faux stitching to make the black star more visible. The strips are snippets of left-over colored card that I just adhered diagonally. The splattered background was done with 2 SU! itty bitty background stamps and some white & silver embossing powder. I also added a few tiny star stickers from Stampendous in keeping with the "star" theme. I almost marked this stamp set for a yard sale, but changed my mind after i finished this card! I think it will make great cards for teens!

Because I used those ever-present snippets, I'm taking this over and entering it into Di's Snippet Playground #89.

That's it for me! Nice to see you again, so thanks for the visit!

Yes, this card definitely has the cool factor! I love all the little stars.

P.S. Thanks for your most recent comment on my blog. Your ideas for using pop tabs are great!

Love the spatters and all those bright colors. A PERFECT card for a teen!!! You "rocked" this card!! Glad any of this didn't find it's way to the yard sale.

Perfect Carol! Love the bright stripes and the star is great - as you say - just right for a teenager.

I sorted out the link for you - one tip, although you may already do it, is to tick the 'upload photo from your blog' option rather than trying to put a URL of the image you want in. Just a thought!

Hugs, Di xx

Love how your star takes center stage with the nice faux stitched star behind it. I really like the colorful stripes on the diagonal and the little splattering of stars in the background. Thank you for joining us at Cards in Envy! ~ Marilyn

Wow! A perfect teen card and you sure don't need to get rid of that stamp. I guess that's why I have such a hard time getting rid of stamps I almost never use...you just don't know when they are going to be the perfect thing for a project.
Your bg is fabulous.
