Happy birthday

It's Thursday!

I've been feeling very inspired by bloggers such as Nerina , and her gorgeous card here . And also Mona and her beautiful card here .

Despite the fact that I can't quite master the shabby chic/vintage style that these ladies beautifully display, I set out to make a soothing, monochromatic card with a hint of color. I knew that I wanted to emboss with white on kraft cardstock.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of this Musical Background set from WMS, love it!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Melissa

This is just lovely Melissa. It's really making me want that WMS musical note stamp. And I don't know what you're talking about - you totally pulled off the vintage-y look on this card! :)

Well I dunno what you're talking about, Melissa! You have shabby chic/vintage oozing outta this card! It's a style I love but just can't get to grips with myself! I'll leave it to you!
