Flowers and Music



Good Morning! The card I have made this morning hopefully covers two challenges in one! Make My Monday - Flowers and Music and The Dynamic Duos. Using only Pool Party and So Saffron clours I have made this spring card, featuring flowers die cut from sheet music. I used sheet music cut from an old piano music book (my children gave up playing years ago and now I've found a new use for their old music books - crafting!). I coloured the music paper and used buttons cut from Pool Party cardstock, using SU's embosslits set Sweet Buttons.  Layering these up on a big note shape cut from So saffron cardstock I assembled the card, adding a sentiment and strip of So Saffron and more embosslit buttons. Some faux stitching and the strip matches the big note. Off to see my Mum and Dad now!

  4. What a pretty card I love the way you've used the music on the flower layers and the scattering of buttons the blue is just so lush. Gorgeous card :)

  10. What a clever way to use old sheet music! I'm going to have to remember that one! I need to start teaching my children piano this summer, so I'll be using ours for a while yet, but I'm going to be keeping this idea tucked away for the future!!! :)

    Love your layered card! The button die centers on the flowers are a perfect embellishment! Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week!
