Musicial Expressions

Here is another card that I made with the pack of beautiful ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This is one of those cards that I had the idea for in my head, but then as I was making the main panel it wasn't turning out like I wanted, so I left it overnight and came back and found inspiration to finish the card and really like the way it turned out!!  I wanted to use the Emerging Color technique and I knew I wanted to use the green, but I had originally picked out a pink and brown to go with and didn't like the look of those colors...so I switched to the Not Quite Navy and loved the color combo...then I was looking at the great trim lace that I had and ruffled it on the back using red liner tape.  The sentiment was embossed with White Detail embossing powder.  I stamped the Music Background for the back piece as well.

So the moral of this card is....even if you don't like how one piece turned out, leave it alone for a day or two and come back and try again!

Happy Stamping,

Liked the use of tatted lace, not too soft and really sets it off. Thanks for sharing and the blog hop.
