CardMaker blog hop: Rock Stars

Hi everyone!  Welcome to the CardMaker blog hop!  Today's theme is Rock Stars.  The blog team was asked to make a card inspired by a SONG.  With Earth Day right around the corner (Sunday the 22nd), I chose the song Big Yellow Taxi (AKA Paved Paradise) originally released in 1970 by Joni Mitchell and remade by the Counting Crows in 2003.  Joni was inspired to write this when she visited Hawaii, drew back the curtains in her hotel room and saw beautiful green mountains in the distance. Then, looked down and saw a parking lot as far as the eye could see.

My card uses the stamp set, Eco Chic by Unity Stamp Co.  I stamped the tree, cut it out and colored it with Copic markers.  Now don't get all excited, I don't have the coloring skills of Colleen, but hey -not many do!  lol!  I used green and blues colors in keeping with the colors of the Earth, and of course there are lots of Spellbinder die templates.
I am the last stop on this hop!  So if you just joined with me, be sure to head over to the CardMaker blog and catch it from the beginning!  You will want to see how each of the girls was a Rock Star!
