Ruby's Rainbow - DT card - Music


Firstly I must apologise for being such a bad blogger lately - life hasn't been the best recently AND I've just started working full time which is a bit of a shock to the system after 11 1/2 years working part time!  Its a good job that its only temporary - my card making would suffer otherwise.

Today's card is for the new Ruby's Rainbow challenge which has been set by DT member Silvi.  She has chosen MUSIC.  At first I was a bit stuck with this challenge but then I found some vintage Christmas music paper which I cut into little pages to make a panel.  I thought that the Secret Crafter digi of the angel looked like she was singing too.   After rummaging through my box of stamps, I found the perfect sentiment stamp by Personal Impressions saying "Have yourself a merry little Christmas" - anyone else singing the song now too??



I have coloured the image with pro markers and the various flowers are from my stash.  I've added a few clear dew drops and some snowflake confetti and then added lots of glitter sparkles! 

I need to get cracking with my Christmas cards now - I recently sold all of my stock of Christmas cards at a charity event at work to raise money for Wear it Pink day.  I wasn't expecting them all to sell, I thought I'd be bringing some home but I'm glad that the charity has benefited!

Don't forget to come and join us at Ruby's Rainbow to share your music themed cards too.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I love pro markers - Anything goes
Crazy Craft Challenge - Free for all
Daisy doodles - Christmas + digi
Wags n Whiskers - Christmas
Winter Wonderland - cute Christmas image

Thanks for stopping by,

Amanda
