Music Speaks

Good morning to you all.  I have scheduled this post so not sure what the weather will be like. I want to go out so I'm hoping it will be dry.  Monday was a steady rainfall from mid-morning onwards.  Ah well, at least the bedding plants I put in on Sunday are well and truly bedded in now.

My Card

My nephew asked me to make a card for one of his colleagues who is a jazz lover and plays a bit of saxophone.  This is what I came up with.

5" x 7" card base made from black card stock . Die'sire "Seasonal Music" embossing folder. The sax player was an internet find and I computer generated the sentiment. The black feathery thread and the black pearls are from my stash.  It's a very simple card but it looks effective in it's starkness I think.

I have another idea in my head so hopefully I will have another card so that he can then have a choice.

Hope this finds you all well.
