Music Notes

The color challenge at Dynamic Duos this week is Basic Black and River Rock - a gorgeous combination.  The team at Addicted to Stamps have a Cards for Boys challenge going and I think this card would fit (edited to add:  missed the deadline at Addicted to Stamps - oops).  I have no idea how my mind worked to get to my finished card, but here it is.

I just love the tone-on-tone look of the music notes die on the Basic Black card base.  I chose the sentiment because it looks like it's being sung and that keeps with the theme.  I cut out a few individual notes from a third die cut to place around the sentiment.  My 2-way glue pen got a workout with this card, let me assure you LOL.

Thanks for looking.

Stamps:  Happiest Birthday Wishes

Wow I really like your embossed musical notes and the stripes in your DP remind me of a keyboard or even a stringed instrument! Thanks for playing along with us at Dynamic Duos!
