Oh Dear.........

...........this has not photographed well.  For a start the card blank is cream the same
as the centre
and the glitter card a lovely yellow green.

Taken at this angle to reduce the reflection.
The image was stamped with DI Shabby Shutters.
I then distressed around the outside with the same ink and then distressed with scissors
and glittered with crystal stickles.
The same around the music paper. I have never ever done that before.
It is bad enough to cut a lovely piece of card or paper but then
to take a pair of scissors and rough it up........well.
But I was very gentle. LOL
I coloured the rhinestones with GY 23 copic the perfect match for the DI.
And here is the inside.
