World Card Making Day (Or Should I Say Weekend?)

Well yesterday was World Card Making Day and a previous commitment (like babysitting for my adorable two year-old nephew) meant that there was nothing crafty happening here. Today, Mark and his high school band marched in the Huntington Columbus Day Parade so nothing crafty today, either! However, to honor the day, I thought I would share a card that I made recently. This one was for my niece, Lisa, on her birthday. Here it is:
This card is pretty self explanatory. The music paper is actually real sheet music that my friend salvaged from her elementary school's recycling bin. To add some texture to it, I stamped it with Hero Arts Envelope Pattern background stamp and then distressed the edges. I thought this was the perfect touch for my niece's card since she is a Music major! I added the same background pattern to the sentiment piece. Here's a close-up:

This is one beautiful card, Linda! Way to recycle -- sure fooled me. I thought that music print was some cool designer paper. Let's see... on World Cardmaking Day I did laundry and baked cookies and visited with my son who was here from out of town. It was still a good day!
