You Make My Heart Sing!

Hello!  Just popping in with a simple card I made for a recent CAS challenge in Splitcoast Stampers.  The CAS177 challenge was to use the color combination of Navy, Olive and white. When I began this card, I thought it would be easy to do a direct to paper background and use one of the new music dies I just purchased (and could hardly wait to use). I struggled to find a sentiment in my stash to go along with the theme so I (reluctantly) used a pen to print one. The vellum panel was a suggestion from my husband who walked by while I was putting elements together and noted that the background I created was a bit “too water color like”.  :-) I placed the panel there to humor him but liked the result in the end.  Well, that’s all for now!  Thanks for visiting my blog.

Stay inspired,
