Double D - Let's Make Some Music

Hello Dear Friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is

Let's Make Some Music
Here is the fabulous mood board she has created to help inspire you . . .


 While looking through my designer paper pads, I came across the
Mintay by Karola '7th Heaven' pack and the musical pages
were just beautiful!  So, that is where my card began!

And the design I chose was created by using the Sizzix Pop Up 'Happy Days'
die (S7-201) which I have had for ages and just never got around to
working with it.  MY BAD!!

The white Tutti Designs 'Nesting Stitched Hearts' 
Tutti Designs - Dies - Nesting Stitched Hearts
was laying on my work table so I used it and die cut a smaller heart from
another panel from this paper pad.

Down the 'steps' I spelled out HELLO using Memory Box 'Classic
Uppercase Alphabet' (#98361) and the Happy Birthday
is from Sue Wilson - Mini Expressions (CEDME002).

Here's what Diane has up for grabs to one lucky random draw winner.

What a fun prize!   So, come play along using our theme and YOU might be our random winner!! 
Be sure to pop over to our challenge blog and check out what the design team ladies have created ... they are amazingly talented and I'm sure you'll find more wonderful inspiration!  
   Hope to see you there!
