For my card, I focused on the sketch, although there are some color elements from the photo as well.
I started by white-embossing the Sheet Music Background stamp onto a sheet of white cardstock, before sponging various distress inks, gradually fading out as I got closer to the top. I used a Stitched Basic Edges die to cut the panel with a curve. I used the die to position the "your day" into the same shape and stamped that onto the card base.
The two sponged panels were then adhered to the card base using foam tape. The die-cut word was stacked four-high and painted with Wink of Stella before being adhered to the card.
Here's a bit of a funny story. I actually made this card about three weeks ago and in fact sent it to my sister two weeks ago for her birthday. It wasn't until I was writing this blog post and the one for my FMS card yesterday that I realised how similar both cards are and my FMS card was only made last weekend! Looks like I need to expand my repertoire when it comes to distress ink blending :)
