Card and Music to Share...

This card was initially made for 2 challenges- Embellish Magazine. This challenge requires the use of  Turquoise, Brown and Pink and the use of ribbons
 I used Martha Stewart's turquoise glitter for the flowers, so it's fitting for Lucy's #4 Glitter Challenge (see here). I guess it also qualifies for the February's flower-themed challenge at Hero Arts blog  here !!!
Hero Arts stamps (CL401 speckled Ornament, CL 140 Thinking of You) , Basic Grey paper, ribbons, Martha Stewart tuequoise glitter
Last night was my son David's cello recital. David has been steadily taking cello since he was 8 years old. He did a fabulous job playing this piece "The Swan" by Saint-Saens. You can see a little bit of the the performance here.
My family and I have been trying to keep up with the AMAZING entries for Beat The Winter Blahs Challenge here. We are making a list of our own favorite and will wait till the judgement day (Feb 5) to decide. I know everyone is just doing this for the fun of it since it's impossbile to pick just one or two winners! EACH of the entries are all winners in our eyes.

You are a talented family!! I really love this piece and David did great not only playing it but he delivered the "sentiment" (as you scrapbooking people say) on such a difficult instrument as the cello. Well done!
