Just a Note

Hey everybody!  I don’t know how the weather is wherever you are, but here it’s snowy.  Again.  March, in my mind, means Spring and the arrival of sunny days and warmer weather.  Not in the mountains!  No, the threat of snow can easily last through Easter here.  I thought I was ready for these winters, but honestly you never know until you experience it.  Here’s to hoping for warmer weather sooner rather than later!

The card I have for you today came together really quickly- my mojo must’ve been flowing!  Here it is:

just a note 1


The striped paper and music paper came from my Lost & Found Madison Avenue stack by My Mind’s Eye.  I added some texture with my sheet music embossing folder from Darice, hit it with tattered roses distress ink, and embossed it with pearlescent embossing powder.  Then I punched the corners, tore the edges, and used vintage photo distress ink to give it an aged look.  I got a little crazy with the vintage photo and added it to the edges of every piece of paper on this card…but it looks nice!  I die cut the label for the sentiment, then hand wrote “just a note,” and added a rhinestone to the eighth note for just a touch of sparkle.  The red, red ribbon added exactly the pop of color that I wanted to finish the look.  Also, I’m very proud of that bow.  Perfect after the first try and a little fluffing 🙂

Let me know what you think!  I left the inside blank (except for some vintage photo along the edges 🙂 ) because it’s a note card and there has to be room for a note 🙂  Thanks for stopping by!

    Agree with Nancy! This brings back memories of Uncle Denny and note he sent me in high school as I was fundraising for our band trip to GA. This made my morning with these memories – thanks Melody for sharing your beautiful work, it really is gorgeous.

    Oh, I have already worn out one Vintage Photo ink pad…I use it on nearly everything. It adds a lovely depth to this beautiful card. Love the torn edges, and really like the embossing you did here…super!
