Jazz B-Day

The Order of the Opus Gluei     Challenge 113-Dancing

I must do a quick edit and I'm sure you can hear the clapping--the Team at Try Stampin' On Tuesday awarded me a Top 3 for Challenge # 31. I've Thanked them over on their blog, but I'm giving them a big Thanks here also. They've got great sketches to get your creative mojo sparking.
I've had my eye on this stamp set for a little while and just added it to my collection last week. I love jazz music and when I saw the challenge at Opus Gluei I knew these were the stamps I would pull out, and this was the perfect sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday. 
When I was much younger I loved to dance, still do in my dreams.

I love the musical paper and how you used it in the sketch. I have never seen a card quite like this. Thanks for playing at Try Stampin' this week.

Hi Beverly! (waving at screen)

Welcome back to Opus Gluei, we've missed you and that creative mojo you share with us!

Your card is wonderful, I love your composition here. I agree with Electra, I can alsmost hear the music and feel my toes tapping. This is a great card for a wide variety of recipients - a musician, true jazz lover, man or woman - and I love having a go-to, versatile card like this!

Hope we get you back at Opus Gluei for more challenges!
