Basic Pomegranates

This was for this week's Color Challenge on SCS, Basic Pomegranates. . .to use Basic Gray, Purely Pomegranate and Soft Sky. I thought this was a striking color combination and not something I would normally put together! I used my Cute Curls set from Cornish Heritage Farms. I made a staff out of the one swirly line stamp and used the music note for the tune of "Happy Birthday". I had to fill in the music note and add or take away the flag in order for the rhythm to be correct. . . one of the downfalls of being married to a Professor of Music--it drove him nuts! :) He gave up trying when some of the flags didn't totally come off. I know that most of you would probably never notice, but for those of you who are musically inclined, hopefully you will find this amusing! :) Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Cute Curls (Cornish Heritage Farms); Paper- Basic Gray, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate (SU); Ink- Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky (SU); Accessories- double stitched ribbon in Purely Pomegranate, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches (SU), bling, Cuttlebug Swirls folder.

Well I don't know a thing about music, but my brother is a musician. I'm sure he'd miss the beauty, too.

I think this card is lovely!

My birthday is December 7, *hint, hint*....

As a musician, I can totally appreciate that card.

We have a framed panoramic poster that I bet you and your hubby would like: http://www.marketing.org/awards/procomm-awards/print-27-37/default.html

scroll down about halfway to "Division 33"

(I can probably get you one if you like it, lol!)

Nice card! And I think any "expert" is bugged by inaccuracies. My favorite part of your card is the music.
