Musical Hearts Anniversary

Hi all.  Well, guess what, another anniversary.  I have been looking at challenges and trying to get some different ideas as my anniversary mojo is packing up at the  Anyway I found a sketch to start with over at CAS(E) this Sketch No 185 and here it is .....

                                                                                                                                ..... now for the card .....                                                          

I cut the two hearts using a snippet of white card and a Nellie Snellen Multi Frame Heart die, and stamped the musical notes with Eggplant Adirondack Ink.  I used the musical notes from a set of stamps which were a freebie with a Creative Stamping Magazine.   I then blended ink on the hearts with a combination of Shaded Lilac Distress Ink and the Adirondack Eggplant to darken the edges.

I then cut the two layers of stitched scallops using a set of Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders dies.  I then cut a strip from another snippet of white card and added two different stitch patterns from a MFT set of Basic Stitched Lines dies and coloured the strip with the same inks as for the hearts.  I then layered them up.  At the moment these are quite hard to find in the UK.

I cut two sizes of white squares to layer up on my white square base card and I inked round the edge of the larger one in order to get the a matching colour, and layered them up on to the base card.  I then added the hearts using Pinflair glue gel, and then added the scallop layer.

I finished with the Sue Wilson Congratulations die which I have had laying on my table waiting for the right opportunity to present itself, and this was it.

See you soon and hope you have an enjoyable weekend.
