The Joy of Music.....

Hello everyone: I had a bit of a hard time photographing this card, it's pretty foggy up here, I can't even see the houses on the other side of the golf course so, I apologize for the bad lighting, I truly need to get me a better lamp. I'm linking this card to the "Less is More" Pastel Color challenge, the Just Us Girls Butterfly challenge and the CAS Mix Up May Challenge with stamping of the musical score in white, die cutting with the butterfly and my choice of sponging the light colors.
Here is my card.

 I sponged the paper with distress inks in Spun Sugar, Shabby Shutters and Shaded Lilac and did the same on a scrap for the butterfly before I die cut it, I then stamped the musical notes and score the panel on all four sides, the sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Country Charm Labels". 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


Again, I apologize for the poor lighting.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you Loll, the scoring came after I finished the panel, it seemed to me like the musical score needed a little frame.
