Daring Cardmakers with Music in our Ears!

Jane is back with us this week to set the dare for the Daring Cardmakers challenge and it has a musical theme to it.

The Sound Of Music

I want you to design a card which is 'Musically inspired'.
Anything goes, whether you use musical paper, or an image of instrument - or even song lyrics.

My craft stash is a bit limited on music related things. In fact I have just two rubber stamps and if I’m honest I’m fed up with using if the truth be known.

Desperate to come up with something else I went down the ‘lyrics’ route in the end and was able to work it in with a card I had been asked to make for a Line Dancing friend of my brother.

I’ve printed the lyrics of ‘5, 6, 7, 8’, the first hit single of the group STEPS directly onto some of the patterned paper.

Hope you (and the recipient) like the results!

Fab card Sue and I see we are on the same wavelength this week!

Answering your question the CD I used was Strictly Card Dancers form Card Creations +. That is the only line dance image on it but there are all manner of other dancing couples on it.
