A Sad Farewell with "The Sound of Music"


Sadly this is the last challenge from Crafty Ann's , sob, sob.
Ann has made a difficult decision and is closing  the challenge blog and shop.
I was so proud and excited when Ann asked me to join her design team and will always be grateful to Ann for having faith in me and taking me on.

Amazingly that  was nearly three years ago.....and three wonderful friendly years they have been too.  I have learned so much from Ann and my lovely talented teamies. It has been a great experience and an interesting learning curve and my thanks to you all, it's  been an honour and a pleasure to work with you

So.....the final challenge #84 at Crafty Ann's is.....

This is my 70th DT card which by chance co-incides with my 70th birthday on Monday, eeeeek... thinking of it as the 30th anniversary of my 40th birthday sounds better, LOL.

When Ann announced the theme for this challenge choosing  this fab digi was the obvious choice for me. I have always liked it and didn't really need an excuse.
I've teamed it with two BP's from mottled stone - very useful are these as they  have a slightly distressed look which I love.

I overstamped the brown BP with this Penny Black music stamp and embossed with copper EP . To give it a bit of a lift I've placed the image on a piece of frayed muslin with foam tape.

I finished off with brown lace, a satin ribbon bow, a pearl button and a rosebud coloured with red copic the same as the roses on the digi.

It will be lovely if you played along with us for the very last challenge. 

Do pop over to CACB and have a decco at the gorgeous samples from DT and then add your own 'Sound of Music'.
There will be three chances to win any three items for this final challenge
You may also want to join in with the informal blog hop with a prize of any item of your choice from the shop.
You will find full details over on the challenge blog.

I'd also like to enter.........

This is gorgeous. I love the image and the colours and details are wonderful
It is a shame that the challenge is coming to the end and that the shop is closing too.
I hope you have a lovely birthday on Monday!
