Music is the Voice of the Soul

A friend of mine just purchased a sheet music shop in Boston and she asked me if I could make some music themed cards for her to sell there.

Here are the first two I've made.    I was inspired by challenges over at Split Coast -  I made this one for the Featured Stamper challenge and based it on Kim's card here.

 I had this fun sheet music patterned paper in my stash.  The trumpet and sentiment are from Rubbernecker.

My second card was made for the CAS (clean and simple) Challenge - to use pink, celery and white.
It actually took me about 30 minutes to get this card done!  I started out trying to use some die cuts and after several renditions -  finally ended up with just these simple stampings.  It was really hard to leave all that white space on the card!!!  but I really like the result!

The note is from Musical Backgrounds by Waltzingmouse and the sentiment is from Take Note by Papertreay ink.
