Crafty Creations #85

Hi girls. Thank you for calling in to see what I have on offer for today. I am so pleased you could find time and I hope your effort is rewarded with something that pleases the eye. I hope all is well with you and that your week has started off successfully. Healthwise I am struggling a wee bit again but I won't go into detail. The doctor mentioned the dreaded word - "Hospital" - but I managed to persuade him I am being well looked after at home. I hope things don't get any worse - I need to be crafting Lol.
I made this card to enter the Crafty Creations challenge where they have the theme "Music and or Dance". An ideal opportunity to ink up Penny Black's "Ode to Joy", coloured with a mix of Copics and Polychromos Pencils. I used both sides of Papermania's silk screened paper, "Gold Ornate" and Bazzil card to mount. The corner punch is from Martha Stewart and all the other embellishments, ribbon and pearls are from my stash. Now this is a landmark card - there are no flowers - Wey Hey!!
I enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it. It would be greatly appreciated if you could find the time to leave a comment to let me know what you think. I appreciate everything you say.
I hope you have a great day but above all stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
