Stampin for the weekend challenge

My first time taking part in the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge blog! This weeks challenge is "Rock 'n' Roll 60's"

Here are the song titles we'd like you to use as inspiration, and believe me, going by the teams cards, your inspiration could take you anywhere!

~ A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum ~

~ Time of the Season - Zombies

~ Please Mr. Postman - Marvelettes ~

I chose to make my card based on the first one, "A Whiter Shade Of Pale"

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, hugs Mandyxx

Mandy you've done a lovely job interpreting A Whiter Shade of Pale, the card looks so delicate, love the image you've used. The paper piercing is a nice touch all around the edges, and the white ribbon and bow are the perfect details to add to such a delicacy.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a super weekend.
