She's So Elegant

Thought I would do a quick post and pop this on, as i'm gonna be going over to my son's school as they are having a wedding party this afternoon and i'm helping out. This was for an order for my sister's boyfriend, he just wanted something elegant and vintage for his Mum who is in her 80's.
A lot of inking involved and I had a go at scrunching the music sheet, then inking and embossing the creases with gold embossing powder, i'm a bit of a neat and tidy crafter so scrunching and ripping don't appear on my blog too often LoL!

I would like to enter this for the following challenges:-
1. Sketch ' N' Stash - challenge 60 - I chose sketch 10 and my new stash is the music sheets.
2. Crafts & Me - Vintage/Distressed
3. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes + Blog Hop

4. Cute Card Thursday - challenge 162 - choose a sketch

This is my chosen Sketch for these challenges, it is from Sketch 'N' Stash

Have a good day tomorrow
Happy crafting
Tracy x
p.s. I have just noticed after I posted the card doesn't look straight, but everything on the card is straight and level in real life
