More Fun with Donelda and Paper Crafts Magazine!

(This is an abbreviated version of what I would otherwise write: computer issues! I'm on our "other" computer, so I'll do my best...)

Donelda and I are at it again! We've picked a few more cards from the March/April issue of Paper Crafts magazine to challenge each other. Today is Donelda's choice, and yes, it was a bit of a challenge...


We are using a fabulous card on p. 52, and I'd tell you who made it if all the info wasn't on the computer that my cat reformated somehow. :P (Donelda will have all the details.) I really liked the slant of the card, so to speak, and followed the layout very closely. My computer woes also kept me from generating the printed sentiment I was thinking of, since of course I didn't have a stamp that was exactly right. Polka-dot ribbon "leaves" work, right? This may even turn into this year's Mother's Day card, we'll see.
Now, off you go to see what inspired Donelda! Of course, I'd love it if you left a comment first.

Supplies: white, black & Stampin' Up rich razzleberry cardstock, Hero Arts musical clef stamp, Versamagic perfect plumeria chalk ink,  Spellbinders carnation creations dies, Stampin' Up grosgrain ribbon, Marvy corner-rounder punch, Recollections black half pearl Pin It Now!

Hi Lindsey, sorry you had computer issues. Donelda informed me that you had chosen my card. :) I'm so honored you guys are caseing it and I love how you've used that music paper. I love seeing how people are inspired by my work. Have a great day!

This is such a clever take on the original. I think I would have been a bit lost as to where to start. Your music in purple looks so pretty as does your cute little flower.

Ack! Fabulous CASE - I love the music, and the polka dot leaves :)
Sympathy on your computer woes - and the cat causing them. Been there - mine managed to hit something that turned all the text upside down for a day ;)
