Rock 'n' Roll Girl Power!

Hello fellow crafters, 

My goodness, are you all starting to panic like me, about the year just racing by. I still only have 2 Christmas cards made (gasp!). 

I would like to welcome my newest followers, Katie and Stephanie, who are teamies on Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge blog, where we have a new challenge for you. Our theme this week is one I am sure you will love,
Thank you to our generous sponsors,

My image is Sock Hop Sweetie, a digital stamp by Sassy Studio Designs.
The teal panel is Core'dinations cardstock, which I embossed, then lightly sanded. I have had a small bag of those little gold discs forever; well at least since I first began making cards. I bought them with the idea that they could represent gold records, but have never had the chance to use them, until now. The black 'record labels' are just black cardstock, punched with an ordinary office hole punch, and a white gel pen dot in the centre.
Sock Hop Sweetie was a sweetie to colour, with my Promarkers, as usual.
Inside my card matches the front.
Shopping Our Stash #107 - 'Use Your Oldest Embellishment' ('Gold Records' = about 16 years old)
Sarah Hurley #81 - 'All that Glitters Is Gold' (holographic gold 'records'-hope these qualify)
Top Tip Tuesday #104 - 'Office Supplies' ('Record Labels' = made with office hole punch)
Passion For Promarkers - 'Name that Tune' (Old Time Rock and Roll;  & At The Hop)
Charisma Cardz #25 - '1,2,3,' (1 image, 2 music notes on sentiment, 3 'gold records')
Crafty Sentiments - 'Girl Power'
