Love is Music

Hi, crafting friends! Hope your day has been a warm and sunny one. We are still waiting for Spring to show its true face. It's 39 degrees here even though Spring's first day has been said to arrive.

Today I made a quick and CAS card for a challenge at The Outlawz. The challenge included an optional add texture.  I used dry embossing and score lines to add texture to my card.

I began with a black card base. Next I scored a white layer on all four edges and adhered it to my base. On a black panel I stamped my sentiment (GKD Love is Friendship) in Versamark and embossed it with gold EP. I then dry embossed this panel in Sizzix Stripes Textured Impressions folder and adhered it to my base card. The music notes score is a Memory Box Party Music die which I cut in gold mirror paper and adhered to the focal point panel. And that was it.

Hope you were inspired to create, not just today but everyday. Leave the housework alone. It won't go anywhere.  Have a great day!
