Black and White and Gold All Over

Ellen Hutson, LLC is my go-to source for crafting supplies so it was exciting to see them start up a challenge series. This card was made for the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge, which I'm especially excited for because the Essentials by Ellen stamp and die sets are some of my favorite sets ever! It's pretty fitting that this challenge is based on Pinterest for inspiration because I got my inspiration from Pinterest for this card too.

I used the Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks stamp set for the playful sentiment (because of musical notes *har har*) as well as some fancy snips and cuts and some paper from my stash, including those from American Crafts Gold Glitter Paper and the sheet music is from the Authentique Harmony Collection.

This was the image used for the initial inspiration. The colors immediately reminded me of a piano and music is my love and where my heart is so I knew exactly what card I wanted to create! My mother and my grandmother (and so on...) are all classically trained pianists and, fortunately for me, my sister never took a liking to the piano so my mom took the time to teach me instead.  I used this card from Pinterest for inspiration and here is a link to the original post. I love getting inspiration from Pinterest, whether it's for a card, party, or gift. Don't forget to check out my Pinterest page (link on side bar) and follow my boards!

Thanks so much for checking out my blog! My wishlist on Ellen Hutson, LLC is endless so I want that $50 gift card!!!
