Rockchick Card And Rockchick Night

Before I post pictures from the Def Leppard/Whitesnake concert last night I thought I'd show you a card I made for a good friend from one of the Rockchick doodles Kerry (curlygirlyme) sent to me when she sent me my card.
I used a Black and Teal blue colour combination.Black cardstock matted with Basic Grey Two Scoops teal coloured paper.I then used some black lace edged with teal and fixed it to the card using DST and black eyelets (don't ask where the lace was from!.....lol).The rock paper is by Crate and I ripped it to shape the card on either side.As the lace was a pain to stay stuck I decided to set more eyelets and making it lace up the front using teal ribbon.The stamped sentiment is from Studio G but I went over it with a black Sakura glaze pen.The red rose rub on was from a set I had (can't remember who by).The top right corner I've threaded teal ribbon through the eyelets and added a Dovecraft fancy brad but changed the central brad to a Papermania teal coloured pearl brad to match the colours as it was originally pink. I then added some pearls and teal ribbon under it. Kerry's rockchick doodle I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils and added some Papermania clear gems to the studded belt.I also used my Sakura black glaze pen on the beads.
The card was made as a thank you for a lovely,kind,generous deed done by a good pal.

Well what can I say about the Def Leppard/Whitesnake concert but WOW,WOW,WOW!. What a fantastic night.I was standing in the 3rd row from the stage slightly to the right so I could get a good view of David Coverdale and Doug Aldrich from Whitesnake and Joe Elliott from Def Leppard.(great eye candy!...lol) Whitesnake were on first and David Coverdale just played the crowd magnificently, especially the women. I have to say he totally made my night on two occasions.During the first track I got eye contact with him and blew him a kiss and he blew one back...swoonnnnnnnnnn....pmsl. Then nearer the end again I got eye contact and was blowing kisses with both hands and he responded again.....wooooooooooooo. No luck from Joe though....sniff.Def Leppard were excellent too though despite no kisses from Joe....pmsl.Was a fabulous night.My feet were sore,voice was hoarse and my hands were bruised from clapping,but I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
I've got a few pictures to post but will post better ones later as my friend had a better resolution camera so took most of the pictures.














Lastly I'd just like to say thanks to Beautifullily for the lovely blog candy of lace she had and that I can't believe I won. So many thanks for that.It's beautiful.

Pictures really dont do this card justice. As the (somewhat overwhelmed) recipient, there is an attention to detail which is really impressive. It even came in a hand made gift box ! Many thanks Cass, it must have taken ages to make although perhaps I too should ask where exactly the lace came from....
As for the concert, which I was lucky enough to attend as well, both bands were absolutely fantastic. Bring on the concert piccies for the blog hoppers!
Good friends are hard to find, I`m lucky to be one of Cass`s, and I`ve got the card to prove it!
