Thought for the day -

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved." Helen Keller

Hi Everyone! Can you believe it is Thursday already. This week has really flown by. It's been my most productive week in a long time for card making. With so many challenges out there it is sometimes so hard to choose!
Today's card is covering 2 challenges. The first is a sketch challenge for this weeks Mojo Monday. They have some of the best sketches and this week is no exception.

The 2nd challenge is one I just recently discovered but this is my 1st attempt at playing along. The challenge is hosted by our own Sunshine and Giggles DT member Tenia. It's a really fun color challenge where they display an album (CD) cover and you have to duplicate the color scheme. It's called Jazzy Inspirations and the jazzy cats (don't you love that name) provide some great inspiration.
Here is this weeks challenge:

These are great colors-turquoise, black and white. Now you can choose any theme but I decided to go along with the music theme so I could use my new stamp set from Simon Says Stamps. It's called You Rock musical instruments.

Here is my interpretation:

Supplies Used: All card stock is by Stampin Up. My heart was cut with my cricut and then stamped with the musical notes from my Simon Says stamp set. The trumpet was stamped using white pigment ink-I really like how it turned out on the black. My circles were cut using Nestabilities, turquios and black musical note brad, ribbon and my sentiment was computer generated. It's a bit hard to read here bus says
Music is what feelings sound like. I am really pleased with the final outcome.
Well hope you have a great day- out the door to work.
Reminder- Friday is the last day to register for Nicole's blog candy so if you haven't done so go check it out.
