You Light Up My Life

Hi there!


Okay, so with this sentiment, I am totally hearing Debby Boone's voice in my head, with a song by the same title. She earned a Grammy in 1977 as Best New Artist [Wikipedia} as a result of the success of this song.  Do you remember how HUGE this song was??

But...back to the card. I used a gold-embossed Filigree Star from DRS Designs, trimmed it out, and set it upon a "lasso" of twine. A scattering of golden sequins and a perfect-match-of-a-sentiment go well with that shimmery star (Tradefish Design).


I am so glad you came by today!

Your card is gorgeous Colleen! I was 5 years old when that song came out, can't say that I remember it, plus I grew up on the other side of the world where ABBA and Bonny M were ruling the charts :)
Hugs to you my dear!

Ha! I just came from another blog where the card sentiment was a Carpenters song -- Close to You. Boy, do I ever remember this song. Now Debbie Boone and The Carpenters are fighting for space in my head. Sheesh! Anyway, I do love your pretty card. Nice design with the sequins and twirled twine.
