STAMPlorations Inspiration #219

Sunglasses at the ready!



It's STAMPlorations' 6th birthday, although due to Shery's recent bereavement, celebrations are on hold.  In the meantime, throughout June there's 30% off all items in the 6th Birthday section of the store.  Use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY and you'll get another 20% off - how good is that??

I've gone all psychedelic/rainbow/retro with this card.  It all started with the Distress Oxide background panel from my stash.  I cut out two sets of Lower Case Alphabet for next week's card, and I didn't want to waste the waste, if you see what I mean.  So I stamped a Groovy Lace Up Shoe and coloured it in rainbow-style with Zigs, made a sentiment banner and mounted it all onto a black card.

I'm playing along at Just Us Girls - Retro


and Inkspirational Fashion challenge - these shoes are certainly challenging :-D

and Fusion - no birds for me, but look at all those colours!
Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog for some more fabulous birthday inspiration from the team, and don't forget to comment on the main post and all our blogs for your chance to win a $25 gift code to the store.
