Embellish Color Trends

Hello

It has been so hot here today that I escaped to my craft room where it was slightly cooler with the fan going. It is supposed to be Autumn here now, but in the Tropics you don't really notice the change in seasons very much :)

Today I am playing along with the Embellish Color Trends With Music Challenge.



I tried to stick as close to the challenge colours as possible, but there are some slight differences.




I had an old music book so I stamped my flower 3 times onto a sheet of music and then cut them out. I used distress ink on the edges and layered them. The leaves I cut from felt - all products are PTI. I do not have a Scor-pal so I used my paper trimmer to score the checkered pattern on the card.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I am off to watch my boy play rugby - the first game of the season :)

Fabulous card Judith! It all works really well together, and I can't believe you hand scored the background. So cool! Ange

You did that without a scor board? Holy smokes! It looks amazing. I love how you incorporated the music on your flower, too. So sweet.

I'm popping over from JENerally Speaking since she linked up to your blog. That layered musical flower is awesome! I love the scored background, too. I can never get lines that crisp.
