Never Stop Dancing to the Music in your Heart

Hello again - I have another new card to share on this newest day of the new year!  And it's for the Ways to use it Challenge over at SCS - Use something new.  Well, that's easy with the ODBD New Release here today!

I was craving some blue for some reason, maybe because of this sweet little Blue bird.  Anyway, to make this card I started by stamping and coloring the blue bird music image.  Next I die-cut the two layers and did a bit of sponging, then I die-cut and mounted the background panels and added some pearl flourishes.  Next I went to work on the sentiment banner.

Music Speaks - Close-up
After the sentiment was stamped and cut along the curve of the stamp I die-cut each end using the same Vintage Labels die as the other layers.  Next I sponged and popped that above the birdie and mounted/glued all the layers of the card.  Last steps were the finishing touches of the ribbon/bow and sequins.

Here's a view of the full card:
