Jukebox Party


Kim of Paper Smooches has challenged us to make a cardstock only card or project - no patterned paper allowed.  This challenge is right up my street as I use cardstock far more often than patterned paper especially when paper piecing.  I also wanted to make a birthday celebration card so I could play along with CAS-ual Fridays.  It's their first birthday and the new design team are making their debut so there's a lot of fun stuff going on over there!  My original idea did not cooperate with me so I regrouped, played around a bit and came up with this.  I love that cute jukebox and it totally makes me think PARTY so I pulled out some colourful Bazzill, Paperbilities and Stampin' Up cardstocks and paper pieced my little heart out!  

ETA:  Doh!  Blond moment!!  Totally meant to link this up at Young Crafters Unite's No Colouring Allowed challenge!!  Hope it's okay to join in now...


Cardstock:  (White, light grey) Bazzill, (Yellow) Paperbilities, (Rose Red, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Pretty Phrases, Jukebox & music notes from Perpetual Bliss, Other music notes from My Peeps and Santa Paws) Paper Smooches
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko

What a fun birthday card. And, I love the sentiment you chose. I have that one, too. I especially like the sunburst with musical notes behind your juke box.

LOVE IT! The rays for the music...perfect. I'm still mulling this challenge over...you know me & cardstock are not BFFs in this regard. Eeeks. I guess that's what challenges are for ;)
