Hello Dear Friends! A fellow Twisted Sister and friend of mine, Stephanie Castro asked me awhile back to be a Guest Designer for her new Challenge Blog, "For Your Inspiration." Every 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, Stephanie presents a fabulous photo for inspiration. We invite you to come play along and see what all the talented design team members are creating! To see the inspirtation photo and other gorgeous interpretations, please visit http://foryourinspirationchallenges.blogspot.com/2011/04/fyi-challenge-4.html. They are definitely "out of this world!" :)
Onto the details of my card...
When I initially saw the photo, I thought about a show I used to watch as a child..."Big Blue Marble In Space." Do any of you remember that show? It was like a science show for kids and I loved it...yeah, I am showing my age. :) Anyway, I opted to create a card for my niece that turns 13 next week. She will be an official teenager...I can't believe how time flies. Creating this card for her was perfect once I decided what the sentiment would be..."you R outta this world." Of course, something any teenage girl loves to hear...basically that she is truly "fabulous" and she truly is. She loves bling also, so it was the perfect fit!
The blue, graduated dot overlay is from Prima. I decided to put black paper behind it to sort of mimic that it was bluer at the bottom like the earth and darker up in space. The black/white baker's twine sort of represents the horizon...the divider between earth and space. I used Bazzill self-adhesive jewels randomly to mimic stars. I created the sentiment/title out of several different fonts to make it more playful...Making Memories Shimmer Jigsaw Alphas, Doodlebug Design Loopy Love Swimming Pool Stickers & American Crafts Sarah Script Letter Stickers. To represent the earth, I tilted the "O" and put some fun argyle map paper behind it...the Danny O line from K & Company. To give it a little more pop I also put a round die-cut from Cosmo Cricket's Tank Mix. The bracket behind the title is LUXE 's Sprinkles Bell Bottoms paper. To achieve lots of dimension, I used lots of pop dots. I am thinking Miss Jordyn will like it. Don't you think this is a card a teenage girl would appreciate? Yeah, yeah I am sure she would rather some cute, designer clothes instead. Look out world, here she comes! Happy Birthday Jordyn, I love you!
