Saturated Canary DJ Luv

Hello, and welcome!

I have felt so very much out of the loop without a printer, but the good news is I now have a new one.....yaaaaay!
I did actually make a few things that didn't need me to use a printed digi.....have I ever mentioned how many card kits, stickers, toppers, etc. I have?  Not to mention rubber and clear stamps......but, the truth is that I've felt so poorly and miserable that I really couldn't be bothered.....and my craft room needs a big tidy up, too! In fact, I was spending a few minutes cutting out some felt shapes with a brand-new die....getting along, nicely, and enjoying it with some future projects in mind........took the cut shapes out of the small dies and one of the dies flipped into the air and landed somewhere.....I know not the clutter.......sheeesh!  After about 4 minutes of shifting piles of stuff to see if I could spot it, I gave it up for a time when my head doesn't throb when I lean over, and my nose doesn't drip on the products....ugghh!

All that said, today is my granddaughter, Hannah's, 19th birthday so a card just had to be created, and here it is......

Hannah is coming to the end of her first year at Uni....she's working towards becoming a Studio Producer and is into stuff that I don't have a clue about, ha!.....apart from knowing that she is a fantastic DJ and a very talented pianist and percussionist, the rest is a mystery to me, but I thought she would enjoy this card.
The funky image is from Saturated Canary and is called DJ Luv.....the original image actually has a boy, wearing earphones, standing at the side, but I erased him.....ha!
I made a card base from black card and added a piece of K&Co. paper as a background....I love the colours in this piece.....then added a piece of tone-on-tone muted pink, layered onto more black card......

I coloured the cute image with Spectrum Noirs and Promarkers and cut it out with a Nellie Snellen scalloped oval, then layered it onto black card which was cut with a die from the same set. Those little stars are actually metal beads that I bought on my trip to New York, and the dragonfly is cut from kraft with a die from Cheery Lynn's "Tiny Things with Wings" set......can you see that lovely brown and pink ribbon?  It's from Docrafts......

I love this ticket was a freebie with a magazine.....nice, eh?

I stamped the sentiment onto kraft and darkened it a little with a pinky brown Promarker....the stamp is from LOTV's "Everyday Grunge" messages.....

More paper and a die-cut sentiment spot inside.......done!

Hope you like.....Hannah did!
