Hey, back at uni now so less time to craft :( Did get time today to make this card particular theme but will use it to write to Granny and Grandad with :)

Quite a quick project but it looks pretty. I started with the plaque I have used for the main backing, then backed it with orange card. I edged the orange with Brilliance jumbo java ink and edged the backing card with Brilliance mango madness ink. I then used Musical Notes Adhesive Ribbons across the bottom of the card.
To embellish the card, I used a yellow flower with a card candy centre in the top corner, and three card candy in the bottom corner. I then placed three flowers to the edge of the card with another card candy in the centre. To finish, I used a Heart Hobby House pin with clear beads on and a metal violin charm.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges: -
drs designs blog - music for soul
the sister hood of crafters - may flowers
crafty ribbons challenge - flowers
