It's Thursday which means it time for a new challenge at Lilie's Little Fairies and this week the theme is 'Spots Or Stripes', nice and easy.

I started my card by following the great sketch and covering my base card with stripey paper (you can just about see it).  I then added a layer of cardstock.  The top layer has been embossed with music and I also heat embossed it with glitter EP.  Next I added some metal corners but they were too bright so I coloured them with a promarker pen and wiped them dry.  The result was just what I was looking for.  I coloured my image with promarkers and added some glitter.  I then doodled some words to the song around the edges before attaching it with foam pads.  Next I added some punched flowers and leaves and added glitter and gems to the flowers.  Finally a stamped sentiment finishes the card off nicely.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
