I've always admired the LIM header with its flourishes, flowers and musical score and the colour scheme is beautifully understated too. I knew just which stamps I'd use to recreate the feel - out came my Music Notes wheel, my Apothecary Art set and my Sincere Salutations sentiment set! Here's a reminder of the header:
... and here's a close-up of the detail on the card:
First, I heat embossed the sentiment and cut it out with the Decorative Label punch, then mounted it onto Brushed Gold card stock and cut just outside the shape to create a mat. This was attached to a textured black card stock strip and decorated with punched gold flowers and rhinestones. Next, I wheeled the Music Notes across a Whisper White panel. The beautiful frondy flowers on one of the Apothecary Art stamps were added by colouring the rubber with a Basic Black marker and using a stamp-a-majig to position it where it was needed. Finally, the sentiment was added to the front of the white panel and it was attached to the card front.
Here's what you'll need to make this card:
Stamps: Apothecary Art, Music Notes wheel, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Basic Black
Card stock: Whisper White, Brushed Gold, Basic Black textured
Other: Decorative label punch, Itty Bitty punch set, Basic Rhinestones, versamark, clear embossing powder, heat tool, Stamp-a-majig

Would you believe I was halfway through making today's card when my husband came in from a bike ride with my youngest son, blood everywhere, babbling about an accident. My lovely son was still smiling but minus half of his two front teeth, and two minutes later we were on our way to the emergency dentist and I was hearing all about the magnificent dive over the handlebars! He really was so brave while being patched up but unfortunately one of his teeth was shattered vertically and will need quite a bit of treatment. So it looks as if I'll be continuing to live at the dentist for the forseeable future - but with some excellent company this time!
Hope you're having a great weekend. I shall be back tomorrow with an exciting announcement, so do come back then!
