Cute Card Thursday #156 - Music Theme

Our challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is Music Theme. We want you to be inspired by music. What does that mean to you? Show us YOUR interpretation.

I was inspired by a two stamps and how they work together. Here is my card...

Stamps: Tilda in Rubber Boots, Smarty Pants
Paper: Green at Heart (Basic Grey)
Accessories: Flowers, Pearls, Copics Airbrush System, Beautiful Wings Embosslitz Die (SU!), doily, Cricut Lacey Labels 

These are the stamps that I think work so well together. Doesn't she look like she is doing the Hokey Pokey? And I love that saying, "What if the Hokey Pokey really is what it's all about?"

This butterfly comes from the Beautiful Wings Embosslitz from Stampin' Up! I layered several of the butterflies for interest, and tied them all together with pearls.

You're probably getting tired of hearing this, but once again, I used my Copics Airbrush System to add color to my roses.

The sketch I used for this card is from the Just Magnolia Challenge...

I will also be entering this card in the following challenges...

Magnolia Down Under - Twos (Two DPs, two big roses, two small roses, two stamps, 12 butterflies (6 sets of 2 - okay, that's a stretch) Happy 2nd Birthday!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
