Let the music play

Had a sort out yesterday in my drawers and checked out all my stamps to see what I had. Found this one lurking near the bottom and decided to have a play. I think I was given this by someone  quite a while ago so don't know it's origins

Image is stamped onto lilac pearlescent paper with plum archival ink, this is then matted onto plum card from my bit box. Basecard is lilac and sentiment has been printed direct to card from the computer in plum.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - monochromatic
Shopping our Stash - oldie but goodie

  4. I love this little image Carol, but the topper doesn't appear to tone with the base card...at least on my monitor. Do they match IRL?
    I'm a real sucker for musical images.
    Thanks again.

  5. This is FAB Carol
    Id maybe have had the sentiment different, say straight along the bottom of the music panel, but i do love what you've done too
    I really think you are feeling comfortable with CAS

    Thank you
