Just a Little Note, PP341

Hi friends! This week at The Paper Players, it is my turn to be hostess. I have a simple sketch for you with lots of room for interpretation, I hope you are inspired!

I recently got a new stamp set from Mama Elephant, and I thought the small images would fit nicely inside the square element of the sketch. That decided, I searched through my stash of patterned paper looking for something that would work for the center panel, and was thrilled with this find from Authentique. I thought the birds played off the feather pen nicely, and the the music notes worked great with the sentiment. A match made in heaven! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Fair Feathers (Mama Elephant)
Card Stock: Ivory, Black (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Harmony (Authentique)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Big Shot, Fair Feathers Dies (Mama Elephant)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please visit the rest of our Design Team at The Paper Players, and I hope you'll play along with my challenge this week, too!
