She's Amazing!

I made this card for my husbands neice. She's 14 and an amazing singer. She tried out for her high school jazz band last week and won lead singer! She loves to sing broadway tunes and we love listening to her-we are so proud! All the stamps are from Verve Visual except the sheet music which is from Penny Black. I used Versa Fine Vintage Sepia for all inked images and various brown Ranger Distress inks for the edges of the panels. The ribbon is from Taylored Expressions and the brads are Basic Grey from the Sugared collection. I added stickles to each and to the body of the butterfly for a little sparkle. The base card is PTI cardstock in white and all the dp is BG Sultry line. I love this paper! Well most all of BG paper....their 6x6 patterns are a perfect scale for card making and so convenient!
I spent most of the day in the yard doing gardening projects. The weather was so beautiful and I got a little more sun than intended. My seasonal colors are white and pink. There is no tan for me *sigh* but I have learned to live with it (and little color from the bottle too!). I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Have a great Monday! Was that an oxymoron?!

This card is lovely,the soft subtle colors are great. Know what you mean about the sun, I burn and peel, burn and peel, try to stay out of the sun as much as possible.
