We need distractions from the doom and gloom. Perhaps, this week's challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge will inspire you to sit down in your craft space
Here's my card
A friend of mine was getting rid of music books. I asked for a couple - I thought I'd find ways to use music sheets as patterned paper. So I cut one music staff and used it for my horizontal strip. I looked for some patterned papers with the same tones and used them for the rectangles. Since I was going with a music theme, I used CAS-ual Fridays Love Notes stamp set for the sentiment and the music notes, that I stamped with Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe ink. I also added an eighth note, using CAS-ual Fridays' Hearts Note Fri-die cut from a bright blue. This same colour was used to punch a scalloped oval using Stampin' Up's Scalloped Oval punch. The sentiment was punched out using Stampin' Up's Oval punch.
Hope you're inspired.
