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.

Sweet Friend

 Hello and Welcome to today's post.
As soon as I saw what the colours for the new challenge at
Chosen colours are Peach and Green
I knew I HAD TO make time to add a card to their gallery.
Two things came to mind straight away.
Magical Powders and SU Botanical Blooms.
Perfect Partners!

Those that know me know I don't
colour images very often 
so I let my Magical Powders do their magic here for
both flowers and leaves.
I used the Nantucket Pearls 
Cape Cod Coral and Sea Grass Green.
Sentiment is from Altenew cut from a Cuttlebug Tag Die.
Background is embossed with Couture Creations Ambrosia.
Attached to SU Groovy Guava.

Here's a close up!

Hope you like my card and love to read your comments.
Thanks for dropping in.
