Playdate Cafe Challenge #47

Hey there, welcome to my tiny corner of the papercrafting eUniverse! I'm still finding my way through this blogging fiasco so, please bear with me...... I guess this is where I tell you all about me, family, dogs, the number of cups of coffe I drink per day etc., etc. It isn't quite that simple, to be completely honest, I'm kind of "all over the place," ya know? My papercrafting is no exception, as far as I can tell my "signature" style is pretty much undefined, I have been known to OD with pinks, ribbon and buttons, I also enjoy creating ultra-clean & simple cards, use oragami, incorporate fabrics and design paper flowers as well. One thing's for sheezy, I sure do LOVE me some color!!!!!

My First Post is for the Playdate Cafe Color Challenge. What I realized this afternoon while I was designing was that I am very heavily inspired by music. Hmmmmm.... Most everything I create is related to a song that I have in mind for whatever reason. This is an out of the box challenge and I wanted to create something that illustrates the rebel factor. What could be more opposite of the norm than PUNK? There is this song that I love, love, love, straight out of 1988 called "Punk Rock Girl," by the Dead Milkmen. It's the the quirkiest teenaged love song that you've ever heard, here's the first verse:

One saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead, I met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead,
Punk Rock Girl, Please look at me
Punk Rock Girl, What do you see?
Let's travel round the world, just you and me Punk Rock Girl

Anyway, I Hope you dig my card, I had a lot of fun making it, thanks for stopping by:)
