The Song in My Heart

Don't ya just love a mushy little love note now and then? This card certainly fits that description. I saw a lovely card on a blog by Kim MacNutt (which you can see here) and decided that her sketch would just have to be used in my next card. Of course, since I have 14,672 ideas on my desk waiting to happen, I didn't hop right to it but finally, the idea has seen the light of day that shines across my desk. I certainly hope I did the sketch justice. I distressed both the music print and the black cardstock by sanding and inking the edges for a little "old world appeal." The ivory tones are much creamier IRL but my camera didn't seem to capture the true color. This card is available for purchase in my etsy shop. If you would like the details on materials used, they are listed below. Thanks for stopping by!
