Be Yourself...Everyone Else Is Taken

Have you ever been really impressed with a card you've done? You come out surprising even yourself? That's what happened with this one. I came across another challenge blog, Stampin' For The Weekend, and this weekend's challenge is "Rock n Roll 70's" You had to choose from 1 of 3 song TITLES for your inspiration and I chose "Three Times A Lady" by the Commodores. When I first got this stamp set from CTMH, I wasn't sure if I would like it, being that it's solid. But I love it! This is my first time doing the image in color though and I really like it!! Let me know what you think! I did the inside as well.

STAMP: CTMH "Be Yourself"
PAPER: Stamping Bella
PATTERN IDEA: CTMH "Wishes" Card Book
