I know I don't usually post on a Tuesday, but here is a quick little extra. Actually the card I made for my music-loving, singing, ringing daughter's 20th!! These three happy little tenors were perfect for her, as her favorite color is purple and I just happened to have some more of my left over "GREEN AND PURPLE" Nuance backgrounds - it was a fairly quick make except for gluing the fiddly sheet music to the black cardstock!!

I started by stamping the Three Tenors on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. They were then colored in with CopicsV01, V12, V15, YG05, YG11 and I dotted their bellies with 0 to get a furry look. Hopefully, you can see it in the photo below. I fussy cut the little guys out and added Dimensional Glue to their mouths.

The Memory Box "Musicality Collage Die and the Spellbinders Happy Birthday die were both cut from the middle of a piece of left over background piece that I had made with the Green and Purple Nuance Powders. These were then glued on with Brushable Glue to the card front. The card front was then layered on to the remainder of the die cut background to add a matching border. 

A green ribbon was tied into a bow, using my Craft-Dee BowZ  and attached to the card front before being layered to the black card base.

The Three Tenors were then added with tape and Dimensional Foam behind their heads to make them "pop" or "bop". Hope you've enjoyed my quick share today. 

Till next time,
