Wicked

One of the gifts that I got for my birthday back in May was a ticket to see Wicked. I love musicals, pretty much all musicals, but this is one of my favorites. I listen to the soundtrack all the time and could probably sing the entire thing from beginning to end if you wanted me to. But since singing isn't one of my talents, no one wants me to do that! The performance was this afternoon and it was great. We were able to get a large enough group together to be able to buy tickets before the single ticked went on sale and so we had great seats too. This card will go to Judy and the girls as a thank you for my birthday present. I got this stamp last year at Michael's in the dollar bin and had to have it, as much for the fact that I love Halloween stamps and that it has Wicked on it. I embossed the image with black embossing powder and then used glittered paper and card stocks from DCWV. Not sure of the brads, they were the last ones of a pack that I had thrown away the original packaging from. I'll be here if you want me to sing for you!

Did you love it? I did :) It has to be one of my favorite musicals of all time - right up there with Les Mis and that's saying something!
The card is just perfect for the occasion - really conjures up the Wicked vibe!

such a fun card! glad that you had a great time at Wicked - I couldn't wait to go see Footloose years ago when it came to Pittsburgh. It's always so much fun to go to a show :)
