Tilda With Love Music Valentine's Day Card

Hello Dear Readers,

I hope this blog post finds you warm and cozy. It's warm here in the desert southwest. It's January and we have temps almost at 70°F (20°C). I still have a glacier in my driveway from early December when we had snow! The ice is so thick that it refuses to melt! This time of year, that part of our driveway doesn't get sun so it stays frozen.

A couple of weeks ago, I was a Top Three Winner at the Time for Magnolia Challenge Blog. I was both surprised and honored to have been selected by their Design Team. Thank you for selecting my card. This allowed me to be the Guest Designer for this challenge, Valentine's Day! Thank you so much for the privilege. I hope you like my card. Here it is:

Here are the materials I used for my card:

Bingo Cards - Joy Craft
Magnolia Stamp - Tilda with Love Music - 2013 With Love Collection - available here
Treble Clef and note dies - La La Land Crafts
Zipper Pull - Prima Marketing
