City Crafter's Challenge this week is MUSIC !

One reason I became inclined to join in the fun of paper crafting was because I had seen some cards with music on them.  I thought that musical paper was just so romantic and beautiful, soft, and vintage.  As if no one writes music any more, how goofy is that !

When I was younger I took some music theory classes, and have loved all sorts of music all my life.  Def Leppard to Yo Yo Ma, Motown, Warren Zevon, Chris Brown, love em all.  

Spencer is quite a music lover himself.  He has been able to identify musical instruments he hears from at least 2 years old, clarinet, tuba, trombone.  Unfortunately, while he sings with great enthusiasm, it is not done particularly well.  Sort of like most of us !

Well, enuff said - here is my card ....

Cardstock - Bazzill
Design Paper - Creative Imaginations, K & Co, Bo Bunny, memoriesinthemaking
Alpha stickers - Making Memories
Brads - Karen Foster
Jewelry cording
Beads - recycled from old watch
Treble clef clip - Staples
