Thanks So Much

Begin with a plain white card base.  Now round the edges
and sponge those edges with a Rangers Distressed Concord Grape Ink.

The phrase is stamped with the purple ink.  I used a 
straight edge and click blade to cut it out.
Again round the edges and sponge with purple ink.
Layer onto a medium lavender card stock.
Trim to a narrow border using layering rulers,
round the edges and sponge with purple ink.

The upper square begins with a musical score background stamp.
It was inked with a gray ink, stamped on scrap paper and then
stamped on white card stock.  This gives a shadowy image.
Now swirl on inks beginning with a purple, then a lavender and finally
a  rose shade.  All in Rangers Distressed Ink.
Using a Spellbinders square die to cut the
music image to a square and round the corners.
This is placed on a Spellbinders Lacy Square die
cut that was done in white card stock.
The next layer down is the same lavender
card stock that was used under the phrase.
It was trimmed using the layering rulers.
The edges were rounded and it was sponged with
purple ink (Ranger Distressed), then layer on white,
trimmed with layering rulers, corners rounded
and again inked with purple ink.

The white die cut corner that is over the
music square is a Cheery Lynn Designs
die cut.

I used cut up pieces of the flat part of egg cartons
attached to the back of the pieces to
give a slight 3-D appearance.

The rounded corners and sponging with
purple ink on almost all the pieces really
pulls the card together and gives it
a very harmonious feel.
