What a total thrill it is being a Gina K Designs Guest Designer for the month of February and working along side her talented Deisgn Team! The blog hops featuring the February Releases this week have been a blast! Today we are showcasing Just A Note, illustrated by Rupa Shevde! This set is so awesome! As mentioned, Gina generously provided us with all of the stamp sets in this February release, and each one of them has been wonderful to play with!

I'd love to share my "Where words fail music speaks" card created with the Just A Note stamp set.


I heavily distressed this card to make it look vintage. It's entirely ivory and brown. I attached the front panel with foam pads for a little dimension.


I like this inside sentiment- it really says a lot! I decorated in the lower left corner with more musical notes from the set.

I really love this card Leslie. The distressing just adds so much, and for some reason, I like that it's square. Don't know why, it just makes me happy - lol. You have done a great job being a Guest Designer, but then I knew you would. Well done my dear!!
