Music - CraftyHands DT

Good morning bloggers!

Thanks for all your comments regarding the uselessness of Blogger. While I'm not happy many of you are having similar issues, it at least does suggest the problem is on their end!

But enough of that. I have something much more fun... You may remember I made a card with a gorgeous MilkCoffee digi only a couple of weeks ago, and I mentioned that I wanted to re-do it in blue for my mother?

Mother, if you happen to be reading this, please look away now, lol.

Well, the theme over at CraftyHands this fortnight is Music, and it seemed like as good a time as any to get it made in plenty of time for mother's day. (Which here in the UK is the end of March)

So this card bears similarities to the previous one, though I've changed quite a lot too...


The paper I used this time is from a DCWV paper pad that my mum got me for Christmas. She really loved this music paper, so it seemed like a good idea to include it here. The crocheted ribbon was also something she got me. I used aged silver Frantage on the corner and sprinkled around the image, which I thought worked well with the blues and browns. The scalloped circle is actually a royal blue colour, but for some reason looks black in this picture... Same goes for some of the roses.

My favourite is the large light blue rose though... I added Tiara Stickles to the edges of the petals, and it looks so very lovely in person!

Mum plays both the cello and the violin, and I attached a cello charm to her birthday card last year, so it seemed appropriate to go for the violin this time :-)

Well, I hope you have been inspired to make a music themed project of your own, which you can enter at CraftyHands - after checking out the rest of the DT's creations, of course! - in order to stand a chance of winning this fab and very useful prize:



I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

As you like it - Favourite texture  well, I'm really one for distressing... I just love the effect you get after going to town with a distressing tool. Though it doesn't work with all types of card, it really does with vintage and shabby chic looks, which is great, as they often involve things like lace and Frantage too, which are other huge favourites! :-)

Crafty Catz - anything goes
Divas by design - Make it sparkle

Have a most fantastic day all!
