Christmas Card Request

A couple of weeks ago I had a request for a Christmas card, for a Wife. But the request was could I include music, musical instruments and a cruise ship on it. I put my thinking cap on, and this is what I've come up with. I used some pale blue Centrua card and the Darice embossing folder from Crafter's Companion, then inked around the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. Then using the Chocolate Baroque Music Fanfare stamps and some pale blue card, I stamped out 2 hearts and then three cello's, then cut them out. I don't have a cruise ship stamp, but have got the three ships from Clarity Stamps so I've used those as a focal point. The die cuts are Marianne and the sentiment made on the PC. I've used Silver mirri card to mount everything onto. The person who ordered this has not seen it yet, I hope he like's it.


Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
