The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen

It's the last Saturday of the month and time for our
Photo Challenge at  Just Us Girls and hosting this week is Sue.

When I saw this photo it reminded me of my Dad
who had told me he had actually seen the
Northern Light of Old Aberdeen in Scotland - hence
the dymo cut sentiment depicting what they may have
looked like for him.
There is a song about this and sung by a
very popular Scottish singer most of you would not
have heard of - Andy Stewart. 
I know a few of my friends will know him and his music.
I was lucky enough to see this gentleman in concert
and brought back so many memories of my childhood
listening to his music with my parents.
My first attempt was very different to this 
and I did the crafters sin by adding just one more thing
and spoilt it. However I do like this one a lot better
and was quicker to make.
I inked and heat embossed a bunch of trees
just like the photo and then added Tim's Oxide Inks
a few tiny stars from a gel pen and a few bigger ones 
with a dipped cotton bud and a spray of perfect pearls.
Adhered to a black mat onto metallic card stock
that has a hint of green.
We bid farewell to our February Guest Leslie
and Thank her for sharing her creativity 
with us this month.
Pop over and see what Leslie and the Team
made with that stunning colourful photo
and join in our Gallery.
You could be our Chic of the Week
and be our Guest in April.
Thanks for dropping in

I love how this picture brought back some fond memories of your Dad. That was so nice to read about. And your card is amazing! Love that sky and the way it looks like a bright light is coming from behind the silhouette of the trees.
