Birthday Card ~ Dancing Notes

OMGosh so sorry I've been gone so long.
Last week my hubby took the week off.
We spent it hanging out together.
We went to the beach for a couple of days.
We spent one day at the zoo hanging out with our grown daughter.
We rearranged our living room getting ready for new furniture.

Last night I decided I just HAD to do a little crafting.
I ended up making three cards. lol.
First I created my blue water color background with distress inks.
Next I die cut and added the three dancing musical notes.
To finish up I stamped and framed up the sentiment.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*Notes cut using the Heart Note die from CAS-ual Fridays.
*Sentiment from the Casual Elegance stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays.
*Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Distress Ink pad from Ranger. {water colored background}
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
