Holly-Ann the Drumming Unicorn

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Crafting With Friends sponsored by My Stitch Back in Twine but due to printer trouble my card is my own stamp.My card was made for our youngest grandaughter Holly-Ann who was 9yrs old on Wednesday-she loves Unicorns and as she is currently having drumming lessons calls herself The Drumming Unicorn!!!

The background was made by stamping music score from Kanban onto plain green paper(green is her favourite colour-mine too)the stamped drum set(which I stamped and silver embossed twice and decoupaged small drum and roses)the drumsticks(stamped and cut out)and the co-ordinating sentiment stamps are all part of the same set from Crafters Companion.The birthday sentiment was printed in Dafont before printer broke as I knew what I was going to need luckily!!!-then I just doodles round all sentiment edges.

I coloured the image with promarkers and drums ended up being a different shade purely because I stamped onto different card.I also added a Unicorn image inside.
Holly is now the proud owner of a set of drums-thankfully at her Mums and not ours lol and best of luck to the neighbours!!!

OOhh and as it's also Friday the 13th it's Hubbys 69th birthday too and we are having a little party for Holly tonight so will catch up with you all tomorrow.

A pretty card for Hally-Anne, sure she will love it Carol. Our eldest granddaughter used to drum as well, be they got sidelined when she went to Uni and interest in them seemed to wane. Many thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week.

Hi Carol, thanks for visiting today, I'm having trouble getting around to all of you on a regular basis, sorry.
A super card, lovely music background and image.

Mia said...

Gorgeous card, Carol. The green colour is my favourite. I love the great sentiments and the beautiful background. This card is perfect for The Drumming Unicorn! Kisses, my friend.

MaryH said...

How splendid this young lady is developing her musical talent, and what a most appropriate card for her. I like the darker shade on the drum (compared to the music score background) makes it stand out nicely and the roses are such a pretty touch. Love Dafont, and need to use the fonts I've downloaded more than I do. Happy Birthday to your sweet DH, and hope the party is lots of fun. TFS & Hugs

This is really nice. Love the olive green color. Thank you for joining our previous Challenge and would like to invite you back to our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I would like to leave you with one of the greatest verses in the Scripture from Romans 5:8 which says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Have a wonderful day!

This is a fabulous card, I adore the drum stamp (especially with the roses), great colours and fab layering. I hope your grandaughter had a wonderful birthday and I hope she does well with her drumming lessons.
