The Spectacular Spectacle Challenge

Morning everybody,

Yay! Monday! I love Monday because kids are off to school and hubby to work and I have the house all to myself. Although I don't have the house to myself  at the moment. My in-laws are staying with me. But atleast there is a routine. I have since vaccumed, mopped the house, washed the clothes and prepared for lunch. So time to browse, check emails and write up this post.

Again I made this card couple of days ago. When I saw Moxie Fab World's The Spectacular Spectacle Challenge, I immediately pulled out Lawn Fawn's Clear To See stamp set. But was stumped! What to do? Because I did a mini blog hop with my friend Joyce using this set. Here are the cards I made earlier.

Anyway, after seeing the current PDCC colours, the idea bulb lit up in my head. Have you seen sunglasses with blue and pink shades? I have! Very funky and retro.I also wanted to use the PDCC colours other than for a flower or an elegant card.

And, I read Cath's article on PC blog about focus on trendy spectacle. I loved the card by Chunyaun with the repetitive pattern of the spectacle. So inspired by all of these, I made my card.

Cardstock: White cardstock by Wplus9, Pretty in Pink and Basic Grey from SU
Stamp set: Clear To See by Lawn Fawn and Folk Art by Wplus9
Inks: Momento Black Ink
Accessories: Button from PTI, Copics pink and blue colours.

I love the repetitive retro spectacle background. Just so cool. I also interpreted the pink and blue shades as two friends. Hence the sentiment. Hope you like it. I love it :) One of my favourites.

Here is the PDCC challenge colours for you

Thanks for all your get well wishes on my neck sprain. About 75% better than yesterday. Thats why I was able to do a lot of work today. Hopefully by tomorrow, I will be well 100% :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

What a wonderful card. When it popped up in my reader, I immediately thought of our fun mini blog hop where we used this set. How did you get the lenses colored? Did you color them all in? This card is so cool. Love it! You are reminding me that I need to get this set back out.
