Allsorts 414 - Music

Happy Saturday! Can you believe it's May already!! Kids will be out for summer break in just a couple of weeks, not sure I am ready for this as they both will be going to new schools in August. I wish time would slow down a little bit...

This week it's Helene's week to host the challenge at Allsorts, and she chose the theme of Music. As always we have a great prize to give away, so hopefully you can play along :)
For my card today I used one of the cute cat stamps from the Penny Black set "Jazzy Cats". Heat embossed on Bristol Vellum card stock and colored with Zig Clean Color brush pens. 

The sentiment is from one of Whiff of Joy's limited edition stamp kits (no longer available and sadly they are no longer in business). The designer paper is from a paper pack I picked up at Hobby Lobby last year, colored card stock is all by Stampin Up. I finished off the card with machine sewing and used a stapler and a little bit of gingham ribbon to add a little more interest to the card.




Before I go I have quick announcement: 
We will be celebrating our 8th birthday at Allsorts on May 20th and Brenda created this logo for your side bar. Please help us spread the word!



Have a great day everyone, and hope you come check back again tomorrow. I have another post scheduled for the Penny Black and More May challenge.
