Going Back to the 70's

It's the third Wednesday of May which means it's time to share my Ready, Set, Go card. YAY! I'm not sure about Kelly and Barb, but I look forward to these posts every month. We have a bit of an extreme challenge and it always proves to be fun!

This month it was Kelly's turn to choose the theme. She gave us a good one...

Time Capsule!

This month, we are taking a step back into the glorious 1970s! 

In a time where hair was defined by icons like Farrah Fawcett and bell bottoms were all the rage, and bicycles had banana seats and candies like mary janes and bottle caps were favored, and the average of a new house cost $23,400!

The 1970s was an era of eclectic style and music. It was considered to be a golden age for vinyl records and Sony Walkman permanently changed the music game!

So turn back the radio dial and hear ONE SONG on the radio. Who's voice do you hear?

Create a card with that song AND artist in mind ~ using the song title/song lyrics to create a card for the May 2019 RSG.

For the extra challenge, use one element on your card described in the song (i.e., dice, pink flower, blue sky, etc - you get the idea!)

I loved her theme, but then I tried to overthink it. I was struggling with my own inability to come up with anything. So I did what I like to do... I turned to Google. LOL! I googled the top music of the 70's and I discovered that the #1 song of the decade was Debby Boone's You Light Up My Life, which peached in popularity on October 15, 1977.

After coming up with a song/singer, the rest was easy - of course, the reason it was is because my card is very CAS.

As you can see, the element from the song that is seen on my card is the light.

Be sure to go to Kelly's blog and Barb's blog to see their cards inspired by the music of the 70's, too.

Oh my goodness,this is just dreamy! What a TERRIFIC play on the challenge! You are so creative and way to think on point and choose a song I heard over and over as a child - brilliant 'cover' and love the use of the gorgeous Unity stamp! Thank you for embracing the challenge! xo
