Mixed Media Card

Hello There and thank you for calling in

Hope your weekend is going well. At last we have a little rain and everything already looks fresher outside. More rain is forecast so we are hopeful it is right.

I made a card for two challenges. The flowers are die cuts edged with black pen. The corners have seviettes decorated with music and I drew the leaves and the flower decorations.

At Try it on Tuesday the theme this time is Inspired by a Song. I thought the best way to chose a song was to stick my earphones in my ears and click on my i-pod to see what song came up from my many and varied collection that are played randomely. The song was Flower Duet from the opera Lakme, composed by Leo Delibes. One of my favourites and I was pleased it was that and not something by Meatloaf as I do love a mix of songs on the pod for train journeys.

I would also like to enter it at More Mixed Media where anything goes and this time the option is bright colours. I think the colours on the card would have looked brighter if the background had been more serene.

Have a good day

Love Chrissie xx
