Lady Sings the Blues....

Hey Y'all!!!

Happy Saturday....yay for the weekend!!! So I have a card that I created today that I just thought was pretty rad.....and.....CHECK IT!!!!

I just sooooooo adore this awesome stamp by Rubbernecker Stamps!!! It's Billie Holiday.....one of my favorite Jazz Singers.....you can't find many jazz legend stamps these days and I was just blown away when I saw it so I HAD to get it!!! So I created this card for the CAS-ual Fridays Movie Inspiration Challenge(My inspiration is Lady Sings the Blues which is about Billie Holiday's life):


I used the Cardabilities Sketch:

I also used the Colour Q Colors for this week:

I hope you enjoy the card as much as I do(I ain't gonna lie but I just adore this card....lol) and thanks for stopping by!!! Have a great Saturday!!
