Back in the Day!

   When my friend suggested I complete this challenge, I was struck by both the brightness and number of the colours, hmm - was this going to be a challenge too far? I don't tend to use this many colours on a project and rarely go this bright. Still, I decided to have a go.
   Well, I faffed around for ages trying to get the right colours, or even something close, gathering up the goodies to make the card took two or three times as long as the making of it! - the 1980's Bananarama classic track comes to mind here! 'It's not what you've got, it's the way that you do it!' 
   Ah, back in the day, hugely influenced by this all female group, I remember going out at night in Brighton with friends, wearing dungarees over a vest, with a fetching scarf tied around my head and lots of red lippy, thinking I was the bee's knees - Well, you never know!!
   Any hoo, before I get stuck in the 80's...After folding a piece of Coredinations jewelled card, I stamped and embossed a Hampton Arts stamp and coloured in the images with Sakura pens. I added a stamped sentiment and embossed using a lime green embossing powder. A smattering of Bumblebee glitter and I was finished - don't worry, tis only the name of the shade of glitter... no bees were harmed in the creation of this card!
 I am entering this card into the Our Creative Corner Challenge:
