Good Morning,

The challenge this week over at Less Is More is 'Music'.  I don't really have a lot of things in my stash that I could use for Music apart from a cute stamp of carol singers, but I was wanting to stay away from Christmas Cards this week.  So I spent my 3 hours in the hairdresser thinking up song lyrics that could work on a card.  I finally settled on this one!

The lyrics are from Coldplays 'Yellow' I think the lyrics are beautiful and could be used for any type of card.  I printed out the lyrics from my computer and then stamped the stars using pigment ink and heat embossed it with a black sparkle embossing powder. I matted the white card with black vinyl and mounted it onto a black shimmer card.

Over at CAS-ual Friday the challenge was for a co-ordinating card and envelope, so I used the same stamp to create a cluster of stars in the corner and embossed it in the same was as the card.


  1. Fab card and great take on the theme too
