Music for the soul

Welcome!  Today begins a new challenge on the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog and it's a favorite for all: Anything Goes!  We have three amazing sponsors:
Sami Stamps

Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet

Lost Coast Designs

I got to work with this Piano Keys Border from Lost Coast Designs.  I had something else in mind; something with a quote about music that would allow the border image to be very prominent.  But then I remembered that I had this sweet piano image that I had yet to use and I knew the keys border would be perfect with it.  It really adds to the whole feel of the card.
I did some paper piecing on the girls dress; I really don't do this as often as I should.  I just love how it looks.  I printed the Piano Keys Border on white card stock, but to make it fit in more with the softer look of the rest of the card, I sponged some light gray ink around the edges.
Now it's time to head on over to the LTSCB blog and see the full details and the projects from the rest of the DT.  Thanks for stopping by!
