A Musical Birthday

Hi all,

I hope everyone had a lovely week. I'm so glad the weekend is here! I plan on playing in my craft room A LOT! But tonight I'm popping in to share a card.

Here's my card:
I'd been meaning to use my music stamp (Impression Obsession)  for awhile and when I saw the challenge at the CAS-ual Fridays site, I knew it was the perfect chance to use it. I masked off the edges of the card so that only the middle portion was open and then stamped the image. Then, I die cut the sentiment (Impression Obsession). The flower is a die from Simon Says Stamp! (fresh daisy) and it's a favorite of mine. I layered some vellum across the panel and adhered the sentiment. Then, the panel was put on some black cardstock and the card was done.

I'll be entering the card into the following sites:
CAS-ual Fridays--Musical challenge (photo below)
Simon Says Monday Challenge--Use a stamp & die cut
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge--Use a stamp
Word Art Wednesday--Anything Goes

I'm typing this on the eve of September 11. Seems hard to believe that 14 years ago our world changed. Being from New York, it's always a sad day. I knew three people that died in the attacks. One of them I knew well. I always remember Lizzie and picture her singing in church. Take a moment to remember those that gave their lives that day to help others. And continue praying for those families that were directly affected by the attacks. Hug your loved ones....and #neverforget.

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by,
