Music Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

This fun card is made for a few challenges requiring a music theme. It is inspired by the song "Spring Fever" by Elvis. The first few lines starts with "A little bird, he told me so. He said come on, get on the go. Open your eyes, the sky is full of butterflies."
I got busy with the Cricut and some fun cuts.
Card is 5"x 6 1/2" white cardstock. Patterned paper is The Paper Studio Girls Live To Rock. Solid papers are from my stash.
Cricut Cartridges:
April Showers - Spring fever is cut 1.25". Butterflies are .375"
Groovy Times - I have not played with this cartridge in awhile but when I saw the dance couple, my thoughts turned to maybe a guy with a guitar. The dance couple is on page 24.  I used hide contour in Cricut Craft Room to eliminate the girl. The guy is cut 4".
Also on page 24, the silhouette feature on shift was cut for the white mat at 4.125".
Page 53 - Guitar is cut using Layer 1 and Layer 2 at 2".

Cuttlebug:  Allergo Folder is used on the white mat.
Other supplies: Inking and pop-dots for the guy and guitar.

Hope you enjoy this Spring song inspired card! I used several music features while trying to keep the Spring theme with some Spring colors. I know it is a bit different but it was fun to make!
