Turn Me ON!

Good Tuesday Morning!!
Guess it is back to the ole grind for me and many others today. It has been wonderful being off from work the past week and a trip to Tennessee got extended due to car problems....Ever wonder why the car decides to act up when it is almost paid for?  We made it back home New Years Eve and the fog rolled in so heavy, visibility was down to almost zero. We decided to stay home and bring in the New Year quietly...watching the "pelican drop" on tv. Yes, Pensacola has a brightly lit Pelican that makes its way down at the strike of midnight!

Ok...on to my card....
It  is for today's SCS Color Combination Challenge~Lucky Island Basics,with a dessert option to use something new.
Betty is the hostess with the mostest and these colors are fabulous together! I got the dessert in too as this stamp set from Paper Smooches arrived on my doorstep right before Christmas. Love the Boob Tubes, lol! The something old is the Basic Gray cardstock. Have had it forever and it hardly gets used! I used the Clean and Simple Layout #171.
Hope you will join in the challenge!
