Cas-ology 146

I often look at Cas-ology but don't often play; the entries are always so beautiful and so intimidatingly clean!

But this week's cue card was just too tempting. I'm a bit of a sucker for music cards, since I have a son who is a composer and classical pianist and am always thinking of occasions for him! Consequently, I do have a stash of musical stuff.

Anyway, I made two cards for this but I'm not sure if I'll post the other one yet - I'll start with my favourite one. My son has a performance of one of his compositions premiering in Wellington next week and a card would be nice for that. I was also thinking about times when I've wanted a card for children who are doing music exams or recitals so that's how the 'bravo' came into the card. 

I made a circular mask for the musical score stamp and it worked really well: far better than on previous attempts!  The die cut clef is from my new stuff stash, from an on-line sale - like I said, a stash of musical 'stuff' has grown!

UPDATE: So amazed and pleased to be chosen Winner at Casology
