This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


This card was inspired by another I made at Christmas (you can find the details HERE).  I was asked to make a Valentines card for a friend of mine with a duck-egg blue and red combo (one of my favourites!) and so thought I’d put my Minc to good use and create this.  The sheet music is from an image I found on the internet which I printed onto vellum on my laser printer.  I then added the mint-coloured foil with the Minc and die cut the panel using the Wonky Stitches die from Avery Elle.    The card base is from the Caribbean Collection of notecards (Avery Elle also) and I created a watercolour piece to go under the vellum just to give a subtle background texture.

I printed off a sheet of solid black toner and then ran it through the minc with more of the mint foil and also some red.  I then die cut my pieces and assembled them on the front of the card.

So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
