FS168: GloriousGreetings



this weeks card is based on {this card} by SCS's GloriousGreetings, aka....Gloria! I love the name Gloria, mainly because of the Song by Laura Branigan. Gloria.....You're always On the run now...

(for those fellow Gloria song lovers, I put the the song down under my supplies!)...

This is a simple card using two OCL sets - Say it big (sentiment) and Spring Sketches (flower). I stamped the flower in dark chocolate ink, then colored it with copics. The flower was trimmed and mounted with dimensionals. I placed a papertrey brown button in the center with some rustic thread placed inside it. Some fun chocolate and blue/teal ribbon under the scalloped squares. Sentiment in the bottom corner.

There were some changes from the original card:

I used a flower, not a butterfly. I also didn't use the ribbon frame, I used a scalloped edge layered square instead. I kept the colors (browns and teal/blues). Instead of using the white embossed layer, I used some designer paper.



stamps: Say it big and Spring Sketches {our craft lounge}
paper: white, celery, chocolate, designer paper (my minds eye)
ink: chocolate, copics
misc: rustic thread, scalloped squares, PTI button, ribbon (mayarts), dimensionals


(and just for fun)

Gloria, you're always on the run now
Running after somebody, you gotta get him somehow
I think you've got to slow down before you start to blow it
I think you're headed for a breakdown, so be careful not to show it

You really don't remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?
Gloria, don't you think you're fallin'?
If everybody wants you, why isn't anybody callin'?
You don't have to answer
Leave them hangin' on the line, oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria
Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you've been living under (Gloria)
But you really don't remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

A-ha-ha, a-ha-ha, Gloria, how's it gonna go down?
Will you meet him on the main line, or will you catch him on the rebound?
Will you marry for the money, take a lover in the afternoon?
Feel your innocence slipping away, don't believe it's comin' back soon

And you really don't remember, was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?
Gloria, don't you think you're fallin'?
If everybody wants you, why isn't anybody callin'?
You don't have to answer
Leave them hangin' on the line, oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria
Gloria (Gloria), I think they got your number (Gloria)
I think they got the alias (Gloria) that you've been living under (Gloria)
But you really don't remember, was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head calling, Gloria?

(Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria)
(Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria, Gloria)
