Challenge #34 - Saturated Canary

I've decided I am going to start naming my challenges by what they are! lol :-D If I find I have to go back to look for them... I could spend hours trying to find the right one! So... no more! Plain and simple! 

This is Challenge #34 at Saturated Canary. I've used the image Princess Rose Red. The theme of the challenge is song inspiration. Perfect! Since the first time I saw this image I've had the song Spring Affair by Donna Summers running through my head non-stop! Ugh! lol I exaggerate! 

The song came to mind when I saw the image in a FB private group. One of the girls colored it and showed it to the rest of us. When I saw it... pop! Got the song stuck in my head. Finally... the song evaporated. Then one of the other girls did the very same thing and pop! There the song went and got stuck in my head again. So I HAD to get the image... I. Had. To! Now... whenever I look at it... pop! I hear the song and it DOES take some doing to get the song out of my head. It's such a catchy tune! ;) lol 

Alas... my secret is out... I'm from the disco era! *blush* You wouldn't believe it... but my first love was a John Travolta / Saturday Nigh Fever / Stayin' Alive huge fan / wanna be... WHO wasn't? ... ;) We danced and entered a couple of contests and won one. Yes! I was... a... DISCO QUEEN! *blush* lol ;) That was a LONG time ago... well... it seems like it... but in reality it was just a couple of years ago! I'm not THAT old! ;) lol

So here's the song that inspired all these memories starting with Spring Fever...

These are the Copic markers I used to color the image:

Blacks: N8, N6, N4
Pinks: R20, R01, R43
Browns: E18, E15, E13
Greens: YG41, YG45
Yellows: Y13, Y19
Skin tone: E00, E11, R20

Here is the card:

I love doilies... they will be my down fall... I don't know how... but they will be. :-\ All paper, lace, button and card stock are from my stash. Doily and pearl strand are from Michael's. The flower is a dryer sheet flower I made. I used a tutorial to make the flower but... the tute called for round circles. I'm sorry... petals are not circles... and in my "Ema-gination"... all flowers have leaves peeking out from behind. :) So I tweaked it a little bit. :) lol

Now... I don't know about you... I have Stayin' Alive stuck in my head now... but only because I listened to it last otherwise I'd have Spring Affair... pop! Sigh... there it goes! ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment so I'll know you were here! :)


  1. Great job, Ema! Don't you just love Krista's images? :) I am not familiar with that song, even though I am very familiar with Donna Summer. Maybe if I heard it, I would know it. I have to say that I LOVE disco music, though! It was kinda fading out as a fad when I was kid, so I didn't really actually dance disco, but I always thought it would be so fun to learn! How neat that you entered contests! Too bad you don't have any video clips from back then. Would be fun to see. Keep up the awesome job with all these great cards! :)

  2. She is beautiful! Glad you are enjoying your Copics! I still haven't made a card with Rose yet! Want to, but I am devoted to my nephew's scrapbook right now - want to have it done by Valentine's Day!


  3. p.s. i have a disco playlist on my ipod! LOL I love Evelyn Champagne! She might have been a little bit after the disco craze, but I love "Love Come Down." Not a lot of 31 year olds probably listen to that! LOL

  4. Good Morning sweetie, this is just fabulous, thank you for joining us at Saturated Canary this time hugs Pops xxx


I love reading comments! Who doesn't? It brightens my days so please leave one and I'll come visit you too! :) Ema
