Stampin' for the Weekend, challenge #18

Good morning!
It's Friday today and that means a new challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend!
But, before I show you my DT card and tell you what sort of challenge we've come up with this week, sadly, I would like to inform you first that I have left the Stampin' team. This was a very hard decision for me, as I've been in the team from the beginning and love our challenges and really like all the fabulous ladies from the team and I know I'm going to miss it all, but it had to be done. Right now I can't give my 100% to the team and the best thing was to leave. I just hope that I was able to give you some inspiration while I was in the team! :)

Now, onto the challenge and onto my DT card (my last DT card for SFTW)
This weeks challenge is called - Back to the 80's with a difference.

It is a combination of any of the titles of the three songs offered and a colour combo of Purple, Orange and Blue.

We have three songs from the 80's and you only need to base your card on one of the titles of the songs. The songs being offered are:

1. Girls on Film - Duran Duran
2. Dirty Laundry - Don Henley

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun - Cyndi Lauper

So, base your creation on one of the titles of the three songs (not lyrics), interpret it in your own way and be sure to use the following colour combo of -Purple, Orange and Blue.

Here is my DT card, based on the title of the third song - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper :

I used another of my SCACD stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell - "Spunkette". The paper is K&Co, Sparkly Sweet. The sentiment stamp is Stampendous, the other sentiment is computer generated. The orange flowers have been stamped with a flower stamp from the Queen Kat Designs. I used a heart corner punch, added a purple button which I received from the lovely Moni, while the purple ribbon and orange pins are from stash.

The cute Spunkette has been coloured with watercolours.

We have a fabulous sponsor this week - Peachy Keen Stamps

The prize on offer is a $25 shopping voucher , wow, how awesome is that?!

As usual, we have two super talented guest designers with us this week, the lovely Gry-Heidi,Aunty Sue and Lil Sis. Please go and check out their beautiful blogs. :)

My fellow DT members have come up with some stunning creations again this week - girls I'm gonna miss ya all! Please visit their blogs and show them some love, they really deserve it!
