Casual Fridays Big Treble and Love Notes for CasualFridays and Freshly Made Sketches

Hi Everyone.

Happy World Card Making Day!  I hope you got to spend some time crafting - I did... and I needed to as I had to make cards to celebrate our anniversary coming up on Wednesday.  I used two CasualFridays sets for my card:  Love Notes, Heart Bet and the and Big Treble die.

I found some great inspiration across at Casual Fridays and Freshly Made:

I had to manipulate the arrangement and sizes a little to get the three elements in.  I started by inking up the notes stamp from Love Notes and I used a grey ink for that.  I made them slightly different lengths so that the bottom one was shorter than the top one.   I then die-cut a rectangle with my stitched dies and added a sentiment.  I die-cut one of my favorite dies - the treble clef from Big Treble.  I die-cut it from some Schoolhouse Red card stock from SimonSaysStamp.
I popped the panel up using fun foam and decided that I wasn't going to do anything else to it.  Mind you, I did have to cut the "happy anniversary" stamp in half so that I could put it across two lines.  I remember how nervous I was the first time I did surgery to a stamp... over the years I have realized, that I can put them back together again pretty easily when I need to :-)
Here's my card:

I'm off back to my crafting space to give a little more love to some of my inks and paper.  I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Players card - and some photos.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.  In the meantime, I have to ban Lou from reading my blog so that he doesn't see this card :-)
