PP626 Musical Love Note

Hi stampers!  I am the hostess today over at the Paper Players, and my theme challenge for this month is "There's a Song in the Air"! You could use musical symbols, sheet music, or be inspired by a song, which is what I did.  First, here's your prompt:

I've had this Papertrey stamp set for's called Love Songs, and it has little snippets of love songs, along with lovey-dovey images!  I chose to use the lyrics from the song by Barry White called You're My we go:

I stamped the lyrics, the heart and the letters in Merry Merlot on a piece of gingham and added two wee little borders of sheet music at the top and bottom.  I mounted all of that on a piece Very Vanilla cardstock that was embossed with an embossing folder called Allegro.  A few Cherry Cobbler glimmer paper punched hearts finished it off:

On the inside, I stamped a row of Xs and Ox, then added a sentiment---also a lyric from a love song by James Taylor--along with a few more hearts.  I wonder to whom I should send this?

I admit that even though this was my own challenge, at first I struggled with what to create---there were almost too many possibilities!  But it was fun to use an older stamp and show it some "love"!  I am going to enter this at Freshly Made Sketches too, because I used their sketch, just turned it on its side:

I hope you'll pop over to the Paper Players blog and see the fantastic ideas the Design Team came up with...then put on your musical thinking cap and come play along with us!  Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!

Hello, LeAnne! Anyone using a James Taylor lyric is a winner in my book! And it's perfect for your musical card. This card is a great combination of both sight and sound. I love the blind embossed musical notations.
