Make My Monday Week 49

After a lovely sunny weekend the weather has turned grey and wet again, completely scuppering my plans for the morning so what better than to stay in the craft room and make a card for the Make My Monday challenge. We are on a FLORAL theme for May and this week there is the added requirement of some MUSIC although the flower is still to be the main focus.  Background paper is a floral one by Papermania and I've used a Cuttlebug  music embossing folder on some Coredinations card. The flower is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque coloured with Polychromos pencils on watercolour paper and cut out with Nestabilities.  A computer printed greeting on cuttlebug die cuts,  Marianne diecut treble clef and some ribbon were added to complete this card. I have to venture out in the rain shortly to meet some friends for lunch (it's a hard life - LOL!!) but maybe the weather will improve as the day goes on.


  1. Lovely card Val and very pretty. Love the background papers and the music embossing folder


  2. A really gorgeous card Val and you were very quick off the mark today! Love the pretty pink flower and the lovely pink layers to your creation.
    It's starting to turn grey here now too probably as I put my washing out around half an hour ago lol

  6. That poppy is delightful & I like the way you've used the embossing & treble clef for the musical element. Hope you had a good lunch out - I was on bookshop duty but the rain thankfully cleared so I had customers out & about today.
