Joyous Christmas


We have a new muse for October at CASE Study; she is Barbara Anders and the challenge is to case this lovely card.  I love, love flowers using text or music, so tht's where I started.  Here is my take:


I substituted some old sheet music that I found at a flea market last spring, centering my flower with a metallic gold button, to pick up on the gold trim of the ribbon.  I used kraft cardstock and a camel color in addition to the red accents. 

Supplies:  camel, kraft and red cardstocks, vintage music paper, Hero Arts S5247 Flourish Pine, F4864 Wishing You Flourish, Adirondack Cranberry ink, Martha Stewart doily lace punch, cranberry ribbon with gold edging, gold button, cranberry floss
