Musical Christmas


This little card was inspired by two different challenges.  At SUO Challenges,  we are asked to enter #58 A Clean and Simple Holiday Card and at Just Add Ink, the brief is Just Add Music and so this quick little card has both!!  I have used the Music Paper from the specialty designer series paper - Natural Composition which I then lightly sponged with Whisper White craft ink to highlight the music notes a little more.


I used the Holiday Framelits to create the little tree on the front, and inside the card is one of the pennants from the Perfect Pennants die which I then embossed with the Petals-a-plenty embossing folder.  I gave the texture a little bit of a sponge with champagne shimmer mist to highlight the sponging a little too.


To finish off I stamped a greeting from Curly Cute in Gumball Green Ink, added a few rhinestone jewels, and some satin stitched Gumball Green ribbon.  Voila!
