Double D - Let's Make Some Music

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D we are Making Some Music. I love this challenge, so many possibilities. Here is the Mood Board provided for our inspiration:

And here's my card:
The materials I used for this card come from the Hero Arts February Monthly Card Kit. I just adore all the elements here, from the Cover Plate Die to the fantastic Art Deco images. I used a Gina K Designs background stamp for the sheet music background, and kept with the neutral tones in the Mood Board for the overall look. The cover plate die cut has been inlaid with gold foil cardstock to highlight the "fans".

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx and Kraft Card Stock
Stash Gold Foil Card Stock
Hero Arts February Monthly Card Kit
GKD Black Amalgam Ink
GKD Music Medley Background Stamp
Copic Markers
Clear Wink of Stella 
Stash Ribbon and Gems

I would encourage you to head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and check out what all the other designers have done. And if you play along you could win this adorable Frantic Stamper cutting die:

As I write this we are having another blizzard with high winds and drifting snow. But then, what's new? This is our new reality I guess. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. Hope you are having a good week and thanks for all your sweet comments.
