Ippity Hop Monday- Music of My Heart

Good morning {ippity} friends!  When I saw the Music of My Heart stamp set advertised on page 72 of the November/December issue of Paper Crafts magazine, I realized I had never used this set before.  I  don't know why, I just never broke it out of the package.  But after seeing so many wonderful Christmas cards made with music stamps I decided now was the time to finally open up the package.

Using the music background stamp from this set, here is the card I created:

I stamped the image once on black paper with white ink and once again on white paper with black ink. I then punched out the black paper with a scallop punch. I found the tutorial for this crumbled flower here and decided to give it a try. It was actually quite a lot of fun to make.  The sentiment on the card came from the  Season of Joy  stamp set. Both stamp sets used on this card are shown here:

All the red  paper I used on the card came from the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly collection. A little paper pleating and small flourish finished off the card.

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop.  For the complete list of blog participants click here.

Have a great day,
Susan
