Stampin´ for the Weekend Challenge #3 "Rock n Roll 60´s"

Woo hoo Friday is upon us once again and what a wonderful day this is because a NEW CHALLENGE always begins at "Stampin´for the Weekend" and this week we have we have gone for something a little bit different.
Below you will find three song titles from the 60's in which you will draw your inspiration from. Please do not read into this as being far too hard, if you forget the lyrics and concentrate on the title only, you're 50% there already!

Our sponsor for this week´s challenge is Simon Says Stamp and the prize on offer is a whopping $25 gift voucher, how generous is that! Thank you Heide.

Many thanks to Sandie for being our Guest Deigner this fortnight.

So - Here are the song titles we'd like you to use as inspiration, and believe me, going by the teams cards, your inspiration could take you anywhere!

1. A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum
2. Time of the Season - Zombies
3. Please Mr. Postman - Marvelettes
(remember - just the title, you dont use the lyrics!)

For my card I have gone with "Time of the Season"

I have used Willow with Lantern from WOJ and coloured her with my Prisma´s adding a touch of gold glamour dust to her lantern and a small gem for her pendant. My backing paper is from Bearly Mine Designs - Designer Extreme Vol 1 and the flat backed pearls and flowers are from my stash. Sentiment is from Sizzlets and the pretty hanging charm is from Poppy Petal Designs.
Do stop by my fellow DT´s blogs and see their wonderful interpretations Donna, Kimmi, Amy, Claire, Ida, Jen, Poppet, Vicki and Vanja.
Have a wonderful weekend. -x-

Ah Nicola, one of my favorite WOJ images, I absolutely love the xmas stamps from there. What a gorgeous card, and in such soft pastel colors, love the flowers and the wee dangly charm hanging down. Fabulous interpretation of Time of the Season. And you've got one xmas card ready........that's got to be good.
