Music Speaks-BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, I hope you are having a great Monday. Snow is back in our neck of the woods and why wouldn't it be?! It is chemo day and it seems like every time it is chemo, it snows. But it shouldn't be much and hopefully it will be the last of the snow for the winter. I mean it is spring this week and spring is what I want! lol The grass is starting to turn green so that is a good sign as is seeing robins. Spring is coming, slowly but surely.

Today for BBTB2 our talented design team sister, Michelle has chosen the theme of Music and has challenged us to use musical notes and or the cleft on a project. I decided to make a birthday card as I can always use those in my stash. I used Create A Critter 2 for my music notes. The birthday Cuttlebug folder and MCT Stitched Party dies for the balloons and Wow, So Many Candles for the sentiments. I used a SU border punch to frame my sentiment.  A simple and clean card but it works I think. Sorry it looks so washed out, I used a pale green, blue and yellow for my card base and layers. It was sunny for a while yesterday when I took the pics and I think the sun washed out the colors a little too much.  So make sure to go check out what inspiration my design team sisters have for you-I can promise you it is awesomeness for sure! Then lets see your "Music Speaks" projects using your Cricut. As always thank you for stopping by an visiting little ole' me. I love when you stop by for a spell and I hope that you will come back again another day. I love to sit and chat with you while enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Enjoy your week and crafty to hugs to all. Brenda

Don't think it looks washed out one bit. Love the B/day folder used this way, and the balloons are just darling. The more subtle colors let your music notes just pop right out. You even do the inside. WTGo. TFS & Hugs

What a sweet musical birthday card, Brenda! I love the inside, too, and adore those colors!! Honestly, the snow this year is ridiculous, but seeing a robin is a tell-tale sign that the worst of winter is over! Yippee! Spring always makes everyone feel better, even when the road is bumpy! Hugs, Darnell
