cat and music

A super quick card today.
~ Ü ~

This was based on the sketch from papercraft star & the music inspiration from City Crafter Challenge Blog.

The embossing folders are both from cuttlebug. I thought they look cute together.
The musical notes base is matted on black. The sides are created with an xcut border punch, and edged in vintage photo & antique linen DIs.

The cat image is embossed on a spellbinders nestie die cut. The mat is handcut. It is so convenient to trace the outline of the die. I've added the ribbon for a bit of whimsy. It's actually cream-coloured, but the glare from the lighting has made it come out white, as has the button.

This ia a cheery lynn die cut. It has been coloured by spreading on Viva Decor pearl pens. The centre is gold, and the edge is a mix of gold and dark brown. 
Added some bling to the card, and whalla! Done!
