The Outlawz colour challenge with a musical twist

Good morning friends.
Today is another colour challenge at The Outlawz. The colour palette was chosen by Guylou with the twist ..something to do with music.

I was thinking of the definition of the word CHALLENGE. This is what I found..."

 A test of one's abilities or resources in a demanding but stimulating undertaking"  

This was in fact a real challenge.......When I first saw the chosen colours and the twist, I knew just what I was going to do....Yea right!!! not so simple. I couldn't find the paper I had in mind, substituted that ..then the image didn't work so well... the embellishments didn't look right...so just scrapped the whole idea and started again.

If you  have a look at the cards made by the DT, you will certainly get a lot of inspiration from their lovely creations.

This is what I came up with.



Paper ...red cardstock stamped with some music notes and punched corners
             white card embossed with a music folder, sponged with distress ink.
Sentiment...Hero arts
Music ribbon and a music charm....have had both these items for ages, so at least they could have some show time.

I think the card will fit these challenges:

Cupcake Craft challenge #248...CAS..not for flowers
House of Gilli challenge #53...bright colours
Incy Wincy designs challenge...Tic,tac,toe. I have used ..diecuts, emboss and metal (top left to bottom right)
Make it Monday...Anything goes
The Squirrel and the Fox challenge #46...use something metal
Crafty Friends challenge #4...Use a charm
Our Creative Corner challenge...Recipe..I used, ribbon, metal, inks
Sandy's Crafty Creations June challenge...embossed backgrounds
Card Crafter's Circle #80...Thank you for the music.
Crafty Catz Weekly challenge.#188...Pick n Mix...Anything goes/add some embossing.

I thank you for popping in to see my work and hope you have a wonderful week ahead. Take care and hope to see you back soon.
 Love Ursula
