Joan's Gardens Challenge #29

Happy Thursday everyone!  Just a quick post this afternoon to share with you the card I made for the current challenge over at Joan's Gardens.  

Here are the requirements for this week:
  • Make a Thank you card
  • Use purple and green 
  • Use something to do with music 
  • Use a bird
And here's what I came up with:
I know ... pretty quick & easy for me (not many layers) ... but I intend to make another card before this challenge is over.  Purple and green is one of my favorite color combos so I want to give it another whirl with all kinds of fluff & puff ...
(A peek at the inside.)
Someone mentioned to me recently that they haven't seen the inside of many of my cards lately ... hmmmm, not mentioning any names (Linda Davis).  So this one's for you!  LOL

The items used on this card are as follows:
Papers:  white cs, K&Co. 'Botanical Specialty' #30-614703 dp
Stamps:  Crafty Secrets 'Artsy Banner', Stampendous, Rubber Stampede (inside sentiment was computer generated)
