LIM46 - Feel the Music

This year is flying by!! It time again for the Less is More challenge which is hosted by Chrissie and Mandi...and this week we've been challenged to make a card with a "music" theme. I've finished three cards and I'm not totally happy with any of them, so...if time permits, I might just have to make another card or two before the week's out.  Of course, with all the Christmas prep, I might be a little strapped for time.

Next Friday is also my birthday (sigh....)  The years just keep flying by! Anyway...back to the cards...here they are:


This first card is super simple.  I used a mask that I tore from the center of a paper to stamp the music background...but first I stamped the large sunflower and masked it.  Sunflower and sentiment are from Flourishes.


This next card is just a music background that I stamped on white card stock, then cut out with a PTI die.  I colored the edges with a gold foil pen and a black marker.  The music note was cut with the Cameo. Sentiment from Flourishes.  No idea who makes the music background.


This last card was made with the Cameo mostly.  I cut the piano from black card stock, then added some gold highlights with a gold uniball pen.  Sentiment is from Flourishes.  The bench is pop dotted for a little added dimension.

Like I said earlier...super simple cards this week.  Thanks a million for stopping by!  I truly appreciate your comments!! 

Until next time...

Hugs!

These are super Susan... you always give us such variety in your submissions each week.

I sent you an email.

3 gorgeous cards, love them all

Victoria said...

Well you might be overly pleased with them, but I think (and I see many others do) they are gorgeous. I especially love the first one. The sunflower makes the card just pop, and the way you've masked a shape for the manuscript is brilliant. Happy Christmas!

Valerie said...

All three are fab Susan, my favourites would be no's 1 and 3. They are all so different:)
Hope you have a lovely birthday with lots of spoiling and a Merry Christmas as well.
