A little bit of music

Whilst leafing through Stickeroos here yesterday, taking a little breather in between making bookmarks, I suddenly remembered a snippet of music patterned paper that would go with one particular Stickeroo - and so this card was born:
I used:

- 6" x 6 square cream card stock

- snippet of music patterned paper

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Painted Vase' sheet

- snippets of SU 'Wisteria Wonder' card stock, as a backing to the Stickeroo (always cut your card larger, place the Stickeroo on and then trim it 'cos those Stickeroos are a real pain (in fact well nigh impossible) to budge once stuck. One strip of card was punched using MS's 'Traditional Scallop' border punch

- a snippet of gold edged cream organza ribbon, tied in a bow

- three deep mauve pearls, just because

It spooks me a bit the way the image almost looks like vellum with the music paper showing through from underneath :)



  1. Love it Di....that flower looks like you have done it in free machine embroidery :-)

  6. Lovely card there Mrs Di! You do really like your stickeroos..something I have never seen let alone had a go at!

  7. I thought you had cut the vase out of the vellum paper too, which gives me a great idea because I love this effect. That's a cool sticker and a great card! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  8. This is so gorgeous Di - I've never heard or seen these stickeroos before - really stunning looks like a water colour painting Karen x

  9. Oh Di, This is truly lovely the papers and stickeroo really do match pretty well together and the ribbon and bow is lovely too xx

  15. Mmmm, loving this, Di! You have done a brilliant job showcasing that fab stickeroo!

    The challenge over at the "Penny Black Saturday Challenge" is "Anything Goes!" Hint, hint.

  16. Ohhh...I like this a lot! The paper and the stickeroo were just waiting to meet!

    I bought some sheet music at the thrift shop and have been dying to try it...may snoop around for this stickeroo...our local stamp shop is selling up and had all stickers 75% off...hope the sale is still on!!!
