365 Cards: Do That Decade!!

Oh boy guys, is today's 365 Cards challenge fun! Do that decade: 1980-1989. Which means use this time period to inspire your card. Well, I was younger during that decade, so there are only a few things that really ring true for me. Here is my card... can you guess what was my inspiration??

Well, I lived through the 80's stacking and rolling down my socks (hence the three different colored papers with lines and curved edges. Doesn't that just remind you of cuffed socks!?)  I also wore A LOT of jelly bracelets. Unfortunately we are fresh out of jellies here in our house, but I found this leather cord that worked pretty well. I also added some mirror paper to add a bit of flash to it. I think that helps bring out a bit of a  'rocker' side for the card.

So what do you think?? What inspires you from the 80's? There is so much out there, it would be hard to stop creating (think Michael Jackson, Madonna, Punk music, teen movies) Oh the possibilities are endless!!

Anyway. Thats all for me today. Get your 80's groove on and get creating!!!

Kristi, thanks for the inspiration and the prodding of ideas for the 80's, some of us were working and don't know what jelly bracelets are, is it like gummy worms? ;)
Anyway great job and thanks for mentioning movies, I finally have a thought.
