Happy Birthday


Hello!

I want to share the card I made using techniques from this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Mondays video.

I chose to use a die to cut a frame and then mask accordingly. I used Vintage Cream ink to sponge around the edges.

Photobucket

The piano and sentiment come from Rhythm and Soul, and the background paper is Sweet Symphony.

Thanks for stopping by!
Melissa

"Happy Birthday" (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Rhythm and Soul
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento), Vintage Cream, Walnut Stain (Ranger)
Paper: Kraft, Sweet Symphony
Other: Copic markers, Dark Chocolate Satin ribbon, foam tape

Melissa, I'm just now seeing this and...WOW! I love it!!! I love that you colored the keys on the piano - that really makes it "pop" as the focal point even more and literally makes me want to pull up a seat and play. This is stunning!!!!
