Colour Q Challenge #84

Blogger is working again. I wanted to post my card yesterday and couldn't. I have NOT been patiently waiting for Blogger to work again. But it is up now and I am very happy! :)  I am excited to show you my card!

Once again, here I am with my ColourQ card for Challenge #84

Here is the color palette:

These colors screamed ‘Rock Star’ to me, so that is what I ran with this week. 

I LOVE stars and I was excited that I could implement them in my card this week.

I have to thank my dear friend Andrea for letting me borrow a stamp pad.  This card wouldn’t have worked without it!  Thanks again so much!!
I had my card all made and then decided that it needed the ‘grunge factor’.  So I distressed it, inked the edges of the card and then cut some ‘holes’ in the background paper to mimic those found in distressed jeans.  I also wadded up the star strip to give that the weathered look. 

I really did use the Daffodil Delight!  Just have to look closely to see it.  (Matting the Old Olive embossed star paper).
I think this is a fun card.  Let me know what you think!  Your comments make my day!!
I also wanted to mention that I never look at the samples or others uploaded work for that
challenge until my card is done.  That way, I know my creation is my own.  But then I LOVE seeing what everyone else makes!  Everyone is so creative!
