Thank You

Good afternoon folks.
Just sat in my craft room listening to tributes to Davis Bowie.
So sad to hear of his passing this morning, RIP. 
He had a huge effect on my future as I met my future husband back in 1973 whilst dancing to Suffragette City at a local disco. 
We used to listen to his early albums and even knew where the scratches were and put them in when ever we heard the songs on the radio and start to sing the next song.

So this card was in the making and in a way it is a bit of a tribute to him.

I started to make this card yesterday, for a few challenges.
The butterflies were cut from a piece of MM paper that I smooshed with Violet Inka Gold wax and then some new Wilted Violet DI, I also added a few splashes of diluted DI over the base of my card. A 'thank you' sentiment from Stampin Up was stamped and embossed in silver. 

I'd like to join in over at:-



  1. So pretty, I like the splatter :)

  2. Beautiful card and such a great story about David Bowie's music and how it affected our lives. I had all his albums and introduced my then-toddler son to his music by dancing round the kitchen with him, singing Jean Genie. Such happy memories!

  3. Yep, a sad day indeed...Ashes to Ashes was my era but I was shocked at how much of his work I actually new having heard lots on the radio today. Love your pretty card and the splatters are a lovely touch xx

  4. Beautiful tribute to an amazing artist, Julie!

  5. Beautiful card to honour a very talented musician, singer and songwriter. Gorgeous smooshed butterflies Jules! xx

  6. Lovely card. Can I have that for one of my end of year thank yous?! Sad about Bowie. Thanks to you and Dad I know most of the words to many of his songs and he is way cooler than Chris De Burgh which you also played lots of in my childhood!

  7. Gorgeous card! Great design and I love the splatters. Thanks for joining us over at Inspirational! :-)

  8. eine wunderschöne Karte, und Schmetterlinge gehen immer

  9. What a beautiful card! Wonderful take on the sketch!

  11. A lovely tribute, Julie, the smooshed butterflies and the splatters look great together.
    Thanks for sharing at Happy Little Stampers xx
