Music To My Ears

I have made a card for the challenge over at Crafty Individuals,they are looking for some music inspiration this month
I have made a collage with a couple of stamps  "Floral Postcard" and "Springtime Music"
My background for this was made with some scrap paper that I used to clean my brayer whilst having a Gelli plate session I even left the crease in it. I have a large drawer full of Gelli papers and the scrap ones.

Anyway,I stamped my images with Black Versafine masking off the postcard to stamp the music, I then clear embossed...I just coloured the flowers on the postcard with a white pen just to make them pop. I matted this onto some card that I coloured with Distress ink and added a butterfly and
