JAI #144- Just Add Music & CFC79- Winter Blues

I was inspired by a card on page 9 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue that used light blue, dark red and white.  I decided on the colour combo of Bashful Blue, Midnight Muse and Cherry Cobbler to create this Christmas card using the Stampin' Up! Welcome Christmas stamp set and a musical background cling stamp from Hero Arts. 

The music image was stamped in versamark and clear embossed on the Bashful Blue card base, while the cherry cobbler cardstock piece was embossed with a music Cuttlebug embossing folder. 

After I made this card for the "Just Add Music" challenge at Just Add Ink, I noticed that the theme this week at CAS-ual Fridays is "Winter Blues", and was pleased that this card meets the brief for that challenge as well ;-)

The little ones and I have spent the weekend getting used to Daddy's presence in the house again, and also getting used to the moustache he is growing for Movember.  If you would like to donate to this worthy cause for men, or simply find out more about Movember, you can visit his "Mo-space" HERE.
