This card was inspired by this week's One Layer Wednesday challenge #42, issued on Jennifer Styles' blog: to create a one layer card using music as a theme. I have a friend whose birthday is coming up later this week, so this card will be winging its way to her. She's a busy kindergarten teacher who I'm pretty sure doesn't read my blog, so I think it'll be OK to post it early. :)
I probably should have changed the sentiment to read "a happy birthday to you, sweet friend" because she is a real sweetie. We were having an afterschool snack together at the mall the week before I went to Raleigh to do bridesmaid stuff with the girls and she purchased something from Britt's registry for me to take along...
AND TELL: stamps are from Papertrey Ink (Background Basics: Sheet Music, Little Bitty Bird); cardstock is PTI (Stampers Select White); ink is Stampin' Up (Tempting Turquoise) and Memento (Tuxedo Black); also used SU markers (Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, Basic Black) and a Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen (clear).
We're supposed to get some big thunderstorms tonight, so I thought I'd better post before making dinner — just in case the storms begin soon and power gets knocked out or something. haha. Dinner can be cold sandwiches, but the blog post must go on. :) (Just kidding, Ken... I'll make sure you get a hot meal!)
Thanks so much for stopping by tonight — your visits always mean a lot to me! See you again soon.
