Music is Love

Hello!  Playing today with GKD background stamp Petite Flowers and stamps and die from You Have My Heart set.   I decided to use the sketch from Sketch Saturday to create a musical theme card.  I used the background stamp with Memento Bamboo Leaves on white CS and layered this with a Fresh  Asparagus panel stamped and heat embossed with the sentiment. The edge of the green was punched with a scallop border and lined with white CS.  Added a Guitar stamped on Kraft CS and cut with a die.  I thought I had some die cut Musical Notes  in my stash but could not find them.   So I improvised an embellishment....I emboss a scrap of Vellum with a portion of a CB embossing folder Allegro.  Inked the raised area with black ink and heat embossed with Clear EP.  Fussy cut 2 sections to use for my finishing touches.

Very pretty music theme card. I did assume those were die cuts until I read your description! Very clever idea!

Wow Theresa, what a great way to use that wonderful die-cut of a guitar! I love the innovative way you made up for not having die-cut musical notes by substituting the vellum. Great work and beautifully done. Love it! Thanks so much for joining our Happy Little Stampers July Challenge.

The improvised vellum embellishment turned out perfectly! The background stamp ties in so well with the guitar stamp.
