Guest Designer - Scrap it with a Song

Hello, everybody!  I am excited to announce that I am a Guest Designer over at Scrap it with a Song for February! If you haven't played over there, then you will want to go check it out!

Scrap It With a Song

Each month, there are two songs for inspiration.  It so happens that I enjoy both of the songs for February - they are quite popular here. You can listen to the songs and watch the videos below. I hope you will head over to Scrap it With a Song and check out the challenge - there are cool prizes too!  You can read the rules here. Here are our songs:

Pop Song

Since I am already a big fan of Adele's, I was immediately inspired by the Pop Song and decided to make a Hello card with lots of fun embellishments! It's been a while since I made an embellished card like this so I thought this was a perfect opportunity. You will notice the telephone plays a big part in Adele's song so it features prominently on my card - there are three phones!

I chose one of my favourite telephone images, Hello Kitty from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet, and I coloured it with Prismacolor pencils.  You can see a previous card I made using this image here. I added lots of flowers from my stash (larger ones were from Dollarama, small from second-hand store, and lily won from Scribble and Scrap Crafts, no longer in business).  

Die-cuts used are Die-Namites Heart Doily, Cheery Lynn - Flourish Leaf Strips, and Simon Says Stamp - Painted Hello. I added a vintage telephone image from Crafty Secrets - Take it Easy, fussy-cut, and popped up with foam tape. All items are from my stash and most came from the dollar store: Forever in Time patterned paper, green glitter cardstock, gorgeous acrylic butterfly, butterfly punch, ribbon, buttons, American Crafts twine, and tiny telephone and heart charms (the heart charm says "made with love.")

Thank you to Scrap it With a Song for inviting me to be your Guest Designer! I had a lot of fun!

Wow! Look at all those embellishments. This is one good looking card. Such a cute kitty on the phone image. Maybe I can teach my kitties to talk on the phone. They can all their grandma and talk to her for hours (then I won't have to).

What a beautiful green butterfly you have on this gorgeous card.
I love all your embellishments and it is a fab interpretation of the song by Adele. Brilliant. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
