Wishing You Silly Love Songs

 I decided to do one more card before hitting the sack and this was a quick simple card
that turned harder do to some silly mistakes.

This is a very thin shaker card with the layer only one layer of foam tape so it will be easy to post and didn't need much in the way of sequins. 

I have used a background that is a blend of yellows and oranges then finished off with some daubs of gold from my Silks. Its a beautiful look and the photos just don't do it justice. The piece is attached to the card front then the die cut panel with the music notes attached via the acetate is laid on top. 

I glued some sequins in place and just laid the rest on top of the orange panel before attaching the top layer.
If you look closely you can see that the die cut music notes are actually cut from music pattern paper. 

Then don't look too closely to the sentiment, my decision to stamp it twice, well of course the panel had moved ever so slightly, and so its slightly off so looks blurry. 

It is was actually the second panel, the first one I had put all together and then thought to stamp and of course I picked the longest sentiment and it wouldn't stamp properly due to the foam tape under the panel. 
So I hand corrected then looked at the card and realised that I had stamped on the card up side down. So I made the front panel again. I am fighting not to do it again as I look at the edges and they look grungy for some reason and that double stamping is really bugging me. I'll go to bed and sleep on it.


Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Oh bless, it sounds like a bit of a night, but I think it worked out well. I love that you used the patterned paper for the notes and I love that it's orange too! Xx

Oooh, I get so frustrated when stuff like this happens to me. You were smart to just leave it be for a while. That being said, I think this card looks fantastic as is! The background colors are glorious. And the music across the front panel is so pretty. Well done! Hope you have a good weekend.

Beautiful card Aileen, love your orange background and that's a fab musical die! Cards that don't co-operate drive you crazy eh? I'd love to know if you managed to leave the sentiment alone ;)
