One Corner and a little Music - A CAS card

Please click HERE if you are visiting for Ellibelle's Crafty Challenge.

As I was updating Sunday's challenge listings on my blog, I came across the new AAA challenge, (a CAS challenge blog), with the this week's theme of "One corner and option of Music". Their wonderful DT creations inspired me to ink up another stamp from the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero February Kit, along with the stencil that was part of the kit.

This card was really quick to make. I inked up the stencil from the February Kit using Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress inks. My first intention was to stamp the dancing couple on another piece of white card stock and use the matching die from this kit to cut it out and adhere to the card with pop up tape. But I decided to see how I liked it stamped directly onto the stencilled background, so using  Versafine Claire Nocturne Ink I stamped the image directly over the stencilled design. I decided I liked it this way, inked up the music notes from this kit and finished off the stamping. Unfortunately the kit didn't have a sentiment I wanted to use on my card, so instead I picked a sticker from Tim Holtz's Quotations Metallic Sticker Set and used it instead of a sentiment stamp. The shiny golden confettis (all 3 I used are gold, although one appears black in the photo) are part of this set, they were glued on with a tiny bit of Mono Multi liquid adhesive.
