The music life plays

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped Phill Martin's Vintage Sheet Music Background onto Coconut White Card using Weathered Wood Distress Ink. I then stamped the 'Let's Dance' sentiment from the Step by Step Stamp Set a few times, again using Weathered Wood. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Weathered Wood. I added some Sparkle Star Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles around the edges and put aside to dry.

I stamped the Quick Step Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Steel Blue Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Weathered Wood. I cut a Spellbinders Pearl Effects out of Sky Blue Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Sentiment Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Steel Blue Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ornate Squares and inked through the die with Weathered Wood. I cut a Spellbinders Luscious Labels One out of Sky Blue Card.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon, added a piece of Silver Tulle, a White Crystal Sparkler and a couple of White Pearl Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Circle Dazzlers to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

I'm demoing at Daisy Jewels in Coventry today. Please stop by if you're in the area.

Thanks for stopping by.
