I came up with the idea for this card and I told my daughter Sam about it. She thought the idea was great, but the fact that I didn’t know the name of the song, was lame. Unfortunately, I have a terrible memory for these sorts of things and I just make up new names for things all the time. For example;I call this Gym Class Heroes song “My Hearts a Stereo” and I am always thinking that the name of the Ford Sync system is In Sync. This issue is certainly a genetic trait I inherited from my mother who thinks “Ginko Balinko” (Ginkgo Biloba) will help your memory, that the movie “Chicken Soup” (Chicken Run) was hilarious and that my son is addicted to playing his “Bluetooth 360” (xbox 360).
I used a Market Street Stamp freebie and a line from the Gym Class Heroes’ song Stereo Hearts to make this fun card. I decided to create a rainbow effect in the text and in the colors of the radio. The radio is actually paper pieced to give it some more dimension but, I’m not sure that you can tell that from the photo. The word bubble is hand cut and both the word bubble and the radio are thinly covered in Glossy Accents.
I am going to enter this card in the CAS-ual Friday Challenge CFC60 Use text in your Clean And Simple design.
