Blended Music

Hi!  It's Friday evening and I've had a few minutes to sit down tonight and craft.  I made a card for the current Addicted to CAS challenge with a cue word of Music and I'm also linking up to Seize the Birthday.

I knew I wanted to do an emboss resist background using a sheet music background stamp but I didn't want to use my go-to distress blends of yellow/orange or blue/green.  So I had a look at my Pinterest board and found a beautiful blend by Tammy Tutterow and decided to try that.  I would never have thought to combine pink, blue and green but it looks really fresh and light.

I stuck with a tried and true layout and kept the embellishments really simple - a white-embossed sentiment tag and a few clear sequins.  I framed the background with a thin black mat to keep the light colors from disappearing into the white card base.

Thanks for visiting.
