Just a Note...

Today's card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used pink card stock for the base.  The grey mat is 5 3/8"x4 1/8" and the white mat is 5 1/4"x4."  The sentiment is computer generated.

I then ran the white layer through my Cuttlebug to embossing the background.  The embossing folder I used is called "Scrolls Background" and is by Darice.  Once it was embossed I inked the edges and face of it with victorian velvet Distress Ink by Tim Holtz.

The music note is from the "Hannah Montana" Cricut cartridge.  It can be found on page 73 of the handbook.  I used the basic (shift) and shadow (shift) features.  I cut it so that the shadow (grey) was 3," which makes the base (pink) 2.347" tall.  I covered the pink layer of the note with tattered rose Stickles, for a little more subdued sparkle.

I also used a computer generated sentiment for the inside.  The white layer is 5 1/4"x4" and the grey mat is 5 3/8"x4 1/8."

I made this for the following challenges:

BBTB2: use music note or clef die cut
Scrappy Moms Stamps: glitter/bling
My Craft Spot: photo inspiration (I used the colors)

CASology: cue word - blush (I interpreted it as the color pink)
