Musical Birthday - Dies! Glorious Dies!

How's it going? I had a fabulous week-end. I spent part of it with great friends and spent part of it trying to get more organized in my crafting area. I caught up on the DVR'd shows (or mostly caught up) and just puttered away. I love having a week-end to putter!

Before I started trying to get organized, I put together this card. This might be a sneak peek at a May card class design. I haven't decided for sure. I made it for a card order and am really happy with how it turned out. What do you think? It was for a masculine b-day card for someone who loves music.
I love the silver washi tape over the music note stamped labels 8 die-cut. It looks even better in "real life."
The "happy birthday" banner nestles between the stars, one of which is popped up. I think it's a fun touch, especially since the sentiment fits in the die shape. Inside, is just the star dies in sugar cardstock layered on sugar cardstock after being stamped and edged. Love the tone on tone look inside! What do you think? Should this be part of my May card class? Can't wait to hear from you!

And, with all these die-cuts, this card is a perfect entry into the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog: Dies! Glorious Dies! Challenge. Check out the design team's fabulous creations! And, you can play along too!!! There's a prize up for grabs so give it a try!

Hi Seleise! The dies AND the silver tape are so awesome! I don't have those stars, but may have to order them now :) Great card, dear friend - thanks for sharing :) Can anyone enter the A Muse challenge, or is it only for demos? Sounds like a fun challenge! Hugs...

I think it is a great card, easy on the stamping which can sometimes be a sticking point in classes. All those dies are fun and people could experiment with different configurations of them. I think it would be a great class. I like the addition of the stars on the inside of the card.
