Just when you think you are finished......

Well, I did think I had finished my orders but you know there is always one which cannot be refused, isn't there...and this is one of them....I've spent so long on this card - all afternoon and still not finished...still to write the sentiment on the front and write the inside too.
A local Choral Society is giving this to it's after dinner speaker in the next few had to be these and royal blue and this blue was the only thing I had near good enough....rather shimmery it is and looks good cuttlebugged. Was really pleased that I had recently taken delivery of the Waltzing Mouse ( stamp set of musical backgrounds....although I've just used four of the stamps on this project I was so grateful to have a long music stamps - stamped the music notes and the piano keys on two separate strips and stuck them together to make the curved piece on the front of the card...liked this as it gave the impression of movement etc....added a treble cleft (can't remember what company it is) which I clear embossed on silver card and then cut out laborously with a scalpel....hate cutting out with it as I'm not too good at it but thought the left hand edge needed it. I stamped the edges of the box as well to take the plain look off of it (using American grammar here!). The lining paper in the box is also stamped with the treble cleft and the single note also in the set but sorry, the sun went and I didn't get it snapped in time.
Now, off to finish the writing!
