Clearly Sentimental about Music

Welcome to day two of the My Favourite Things April release teasers! Today I'm sharing a card made with last month's Triple Scoop set (click here for more info on the Triple Scoop program!) Clearly Sentimental about Music - which will be available for purchase along with all the other April sets.
My favourite thing about all the sets in the Clearly Sentimental line is how well they work with all the Die-namics to make quick and easy yet stunning cards. I've used papers from the Madeline collection by Prima today - I was so excited to flip through the pack and see that music note paper - I knew right away how this card would come together.

My sentiment is stamped on a panel die cut with one of the Sweet Stack Label die-namics, and adhered to a hand cut mat. I layered it over the 1/4" Rosette die and the Dizzy Doily - this is my fave combo of dies right now - but omgosh, did you SEE the new doily dies coming out this month!? Amazing!

I cut the musical notes, ran them through my Xyron sticker maker and added some Martha Stewart fine glitter in Onyx before running them back through the Xyron and adhering them to my card. I love the sparkle - with no mess!

I added some twine to my layer before adhering it to my card base. The Cappuchino twine is a perfect match for Soft Suede cardstock!
Isn't that a beautiful sentiment? and so true! I've finished off the inside of my card simply with some paper scraps, more twine and black rhinestones. 

Here are all the wonderful Die-namics I've used on this card:
