Little Shop of Horrors

No, my blog post title isn't describing my stamping room.  I am referring to the play Little Shop of Horrors.  It's coming to Seattle in March and we bought tickets to it for my daughter for a birthday gift.  I made the card below for her, too.  Now, if you've never seen the play or movie, the card will not make much sense.  But she knew immediately that it was Audrey 2, the carnivorous plant in the play.

I must give credit to Amy Downing for the basic design.  I saw her card and used it to make my own version.  Amy's website is at http://amyzingcards.blogspot.com/, but she never did post a picture of her card on her blog.  Thank you, Amy, for the inspiration!

And, just in case you're worried ;-) that I spoiled the birthday surprise for my daughter (since her birthday is in January), I already gave her the card and had her choose the date she could make it to the play.  I even had a leaf poking out of the back of the envelope to give a hint of what was inside.

I also wrote a poem for the inside the card based on the play's theme song, Suddenly Seymour.  It was hokey but cute.

FYI, Little Shop of Horrors is a fun movie, too.  It stars Rick Moranis and also has Steve Martin, John Candy, James Belushi, Christopher Guest, Bill Murray, and Ellen Greene.

Happy New Year.
