Music a la Carte



Happy Memorial Day!! I very hopeful prayer for our troops this day!!

It has been a rainy weekend here, but it was a happy rain. Yesterday there was a motor vehicle accident close to my house and the car ran into a power pole and it fell in a neighbor's yard...of course the power went out...I hope everyone was okay, but there were many sirens and I saw an ambulance go by in front of my house. They had to re-route everyone through my street until the clean up was done. Once again, I hope and pray that everyone was okay.

This is one of my very favorite sets of stamps from Artful INKables. I stamped the piano with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder from SU. I colored using Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol adding the Swarovski Crystals. I used Nestabilities Labels Two using Swirling Black Cardstock from Michaels and background music paper from Hobby Lobby. The gingham ribbon came from WalMart and I added a flower with a pearl center to the bow.

The photo doesn't really do it justice, as I would know since I saw it in person. This card snaps, crackles, and pops. I love the red, black, and white. Very simple, very crisp, very elegant.
