Musical happy birthday

This week, Moxie Fab world has a challenge to use a window in a card.  Also, Less is More has a challenge to use black and white with just a dash of colour. I had my treble clef die out on the desk from a card I made on Monday (I wasn't entirely happy with that one), so thought I'd use it again. I also had some Echo Park patterned paper that I thought would add a nice border, and I used my brand new Simon Says Stamp Holiday shapes die for the heart.  All the rest of the notes I handcut, and I hand drew the musical stave and the time signature on the inside of the card ;)

Oh, and for those of you who do not read music, it is actually a musically accurate representation of the first four words of the "happy birthday" song ;)

I'm enjoying wonderfully cool weather here today - 14 degrees C at the moment, and a forecast of 20 - makes a lovely change from 41 the other day - bracing for 37 on Friday! Wishing for a cool change in the bushfire ravaged areas of NSW, Victoria and Tasmania.

Have a great day ;)


  1. I love that your card is actually Happy Birthday! Well done (as a piano player, all the 'fake' music stamps drive me crazy! lol!)

  2. I love to see music represented on cards... so often however, it appears upside down... but not here!
    Love the little heart!
    Thanks so much
