I really wanted to use a bunch of my newest dies...BIG GRIN

And I'm using several stamps from Quietfire Design - the newest "Happy Birthday" from the "Happy Family Days" set the Music sheet background and the "Music Expresses that..." quote

I created my easel shape from cream toned cardstock. Made a frame border mask using Tim's mask material and stamped the music sheet onto both front sections using Versafine Vintage Sepia.

I die cut the lattice piece (Marianne Designs LR0236) from cream cardstock and the under piece from red cardstock. Adhered them to my card front.

Die cut the flowers (Memory Box "Lovely Peony Outline") from both newspaper text scrapbook paper (creative Imaginations "Style Page") and red cardstock, reassembling the pieces onto a solid cut out of the flower - I used my electronic cutter to cut mine, but it's available as a die also. I used my Quickie Glue Pen to fill some of the center areas and sprinkled with pastel pink glitter (Creative Beginnings "Pastel Assortment") and a touch of Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Ruby Red". Adhered both my flowers to card front.

Die cut the little butterfly (Memory Box "Pippi") from the text paper and colored the body section with a brown Zig Writer, adhered the elements and then onto the card.

Punched some small red circles (3/4" circle punch) and some cream scallop circles (EK Success), adhered them together and in a group. Used a Krylon gold leafing pen to color my music charm, then adhered to card with Golden's heavy gel medium.

Stamped the Music quote with Versafine "Vintage Sepia" and clear embossed.

Wanted some pearls on the front and was pulling out my various packages and hit upon this flourish one that I thought was perfect...

Stamped the floor of the easel with Impression Obsession CAC "Bubbles" using Distress "Festive Berry".

Colored the white music ribbon with Distress Stains "Antique Linen" and a touch of "Picket Fence", dried and adhered to card base with Sookwang tape. Tied a peg bow and adhered that with the heavy gel medium.

Stamped the Happy Birthday with the brown on cream cardstock, die cut with Spellbinders circle die and die cut the matching Spellbinders scallop circle from red. Adhered it over the music ribbon with 3D adhesive squares.
