Try it on Tuesday GDT spot!!! a very musical card!

Morning!!! Happy Tuesday!

First of all, I want to welcome my new followers! thank you so much for clicking the "follow" button! it means so much to me! Hopefully I will be able to inspire you in some way or another!

Today's post is very special, because I'm the Guest Designer for Try It on Tuesday challenge this fortnight!!! I can't tell you how happy I am to have made a card as a GDT for this amazing challenge!  Thank you so much for having me!

When I was told about the theme this week, I just had to smile! It was perfect for a card I needed to make...(not telling you for who, a bit too early...!!! ). So the theme at Try it Tuesday challenge this week is.... 
So start making your Music themed cards and join Try it on Tuesday challenge!

This is the card I made:

I used two clear stamps for this card. 
The first one is the "Grunge Music" clear stamp from Lili of the Valley, which I stamped with black ink.
The second one is a beautiful floral clear stamp with lots of roses from Fleur boutique stamp collection (it was a freebie in a magazine). I coloured the roses with my Promarkers. 

The colours I used are: lilac, lavender, blossom, pink mittens, buttercup, tulip yellow, Lime Zest, Leaf green.

And of course, I put a lot of layers! 

The papers are from: Crate Paper DIY shop paper pad (the music sheet paper in the background) and a freebie from a magazine (the cream paper).

I distressed all the edges of the papers with the Tim Holtz Distresser tool and Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Tea Dye and Tattered Rose. I bent the corners to give it a bit of a vintage/grunge look.

I also hand-stitched the bottom layer with white thread.

I used a pink doily and a piece of lace mesh as extra layers. 

Under the roses image I put a beautiful frame die cut from Marianne Creatables.

The butterflies are punched with the Martha Stewart punch and wet embossed using the LOTV grunge music stamp, using pink embossing powder.

I used a small musical note punch to add some pink notes on top of the music sheet.

The flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I created the sentiment on my computer.
The ribbon attached is from local shop.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
