Music Speaks: Dies R Us Inspirational card

Good morning! Alicia here today for the Dies R Us Inspirational blog.  I have created an any occasion card using an embossing folder and die.  I was amazed with at how smoothly the Cheery Lynn Designs Whistle a Happy Tune die cut the very first time!  It is so intricate but with only one pass and a gentle hand the die ejected perfectly.  I had to punch out a couple of slivers of paper but they came out easily.

Here's a close up of the treble clef.  I used some bling flourishes in black to enhance the die cut.  They didn't match up perfect but I think it adds so much to the cut.

The Dies R Us products I used were:
