Just a Note...

A couple of cards today for the One Layer Wednesday challenge.  Jennifer put forth the challenge for us to use anything music related on our cards.   Immediately I thought of using either my Hero Arts Musicial Background cling and/or the Hero Arts Musical Clef set for my card.   Then I remembered my long neglected WPlus9Design set Just A Note and I decided to make two cards for the challenge.

First up is the card I made using the Hero Arts Musical Clef set.  I stamped the music image from the set in the bottom right corner of the card using Ranger's Weather Wood distress ink.  I then overstamped the clef image using PTI's True Black ink.   The "just a note" sentiment is from Savvy Stamps and was perfect for the card.  I added a few grey pearls.  Initially I had put the pearls in the upper left corner, realized how strange that looked and moved them. 



On the second card I used the WPlus9Design Just a Note set.  Again, I stamped the music image in the bottom right corner using Weather Wood  and then stamped the two part sentiment using True Black.  For this card I decided to add a little bit of color in the form of the green/white bakers twine and a few green gems. 



Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Soft Stone; Ink:  Ranger Weather Wood & PTI True Black; Stamps:  Hero Arts Musical Clef, WPIus9Design Just A Note; Savvy Stamps "just a note", bakers twine, Hero Arts green gems & BasicGrey pearls
