Birthday Tunes

Good morning 🙂  After suffering yesterday with allergies, we got a nice rain last night, so I’m hoping that it will keep the pollen down, and I don’t spend a lot more time sniffling and sneezing!!  I made this sweet birthday card with a sweet image from LeAnn’s World 101. Ariel also happens to be the image for this month’s progressive challenge at the LeAnn’s World Facebook group 🙂  I colored her up with my Copic Markers, then fussy cut her out 🙂  I haven’t done a black/white/red color scheme card for a long time, and since it’s my favorite scheme, I figured it was time!! I bought this HUGE pack of black and white papers a few years ago, and it’s perfect to find coordinating papers.  I went with some plaid prints, leaving the dark red as accents and for matting.  I used this wonderful sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches as my guideline for layout:

After getting everything laid out, I added some musical die cuts in the red to make everything pop, and a stamped sentiment that I cut with a stacking fishtail banner die 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
