we're still having a blast with music-themed cards at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so here without further ado is my second attempt at this fun prompt:

(vintage: sheet music; decorative cardstock panel from a pack of basic grey holiday stickers; patterned paper: basic grey, autumn leaves, reminisce, echo park, dcwv; velvet paper: sei; ancient letter stickers: k and co; velvet flower brad: creative imaginations; little bird from mindy terasawa's "i believe" digi kit, designer digitals; ink: colorbox; adhesives tombow monorunner, scotch gluestick, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)

i used a recent deconstructed sketch (#53) for this one, i just love how flexible these are!

you can see i've piled on the layers: layers of paper, layers of hand-cut poinsettias, clear acrylic letter stickers layered onto paper and then cut out to form the little dots on the lower left of the sketch.

this might be my FAVORITE way to use vintage sheet music-- or at least, one of my MANY favorite uses-- basically just as another variety of patterned paper, but one which packs an extra punch by putting people in mind of the sounds of the holiday as well as the visual delights!

c'mon along to JINGLE BELLES and link up with us... we're dying to see ♥YOUR♥ favorite way to use sheet music, or any other music-themed embellies!!!
