Musical Anniversary


I was asked to make an anniversary card, and the inspiration came from this photo at Fusion:


I die-cut the hearts from a piece of card that had got the embossing/spritz treatment.  I don't think I've got any music background stamps but guess what, I've got a (NBUS) music embossing folder, so I made a background panel by swooshing Distress Inks, spritzing and this time embossing.  The banner is from the new Winnie & Walter release, The Big The Bold and Extras, and the words are from The Big, The Bold and The Happy.

I'm also entering this into Shopping Our Stash where it's their three-year anniversary, so the theme is birthday or anniversary cards.

  11. You know I have that folder and I almost never use it because I didnt think I could dress it up in any kind of interesting way. You however have managed to make it come to life. I love how the polka dot hearts contrast with the muted background. You certainly have lovely way with cards Ms Shirley!
