Rock star and an old lady

I don't think you can go any farther in different directions than a rockstar theme and an old lady theme for cards.  lol

My first card is using Lisa Somerville's Blogger's Challenge of the theme In Bloom and the Mojo Monday 227 sketch.

My card:
Mojo227 (outside)

Mojo227 (inside)

What does the old lady have to do with an In Bloom theme?  Well, she's in her second "bloom" of youth, of course!  lol  I hope when I get really old, I'll have the gumption and self-confidence to get on the pony ride outside of a store and have fun without a thought of what other people think. 

My second card is my rockstar card.  I used the inspiration piece for the Inspiration Hop on stampTV hosted by Gina K stamps

Isn't it a gorgeous painting?  The first thing that struck me were the rich, deep colors of the painting.  Love those colors so that was the inspiration I used for my card. 

I also used the sketch on Unscripted Sketches 145

My card:

Although I'm not the rock and roll type, I do love this stamp set.  It's not as "rock n roll grunge" as I would have liked it, but it's a good step outside my comfort zone. 

Blogger's Challenge closes in 4 more days.
Inspiration blog closes Monday.
Unscripted Sketches posts a new sketch every Saturday.

Thanks for looking and have a good night.
