OLW42: I've Got the Music in Me

ETA:  Well, it was bound to happen. My friend Carol and I have very similar cards for the challenge. I started not to post mine, but what the heck. Carol,  I swear I didn't see your card before making mine. I guess great minds really do think alike ...

A fabulous challenge this week from Jennifer Styles:  to create a one layer musically themed card. I started with a totally different card in mind, but couldn't make it work. So I went a totally different direction, and I'm very happy with the outcome. In fact, I already made two more cards while I had everything out. Sometimes I just make things too difficult . . . and that's not just in card making lol

The musical score stamp is from Stampendous and the sentiment is from Savvy. I added some black glitter to the treble clef with a Copic Spica pen. The inside sentiment is from Verses. I wish now I had added some little music notes on the inside in red . . . I think I'll go back and do that.

Thank you for stopping by today.



  1. Great card Colleen. Very simple and elegant. Liked the touch of red.

  2. Oh, you're too funny!
    You know, it's was bound to happen. We got pretty close to the same card last week, too...if my stamp wasn't defective....
    Anyway, I really, really like your card, esp the inside sentiment. So cute!

  3. This happened with the Christmas card challenge for me!! I made a different card ;)

    I love this card - and the spot red on the senitment is fab!

  4. Lovely card Colleen, and yes, I think a touch of red inside would cheer it up.

  5. This is beautiful. I love the black and white with the red sentiment!

  6. I think it's perfect as it is! Love that flash of red.

  7. Simple, happy, and lovely!

    Great, great card for the challenge!

    Thanks for playing along with OLW42!
