Little Black Dress ~~ Recital Ready!
Ok, again with the music!
(Reference October 1)
The theme this week at Heart 2 Heart: Close to my Heart Challenge Blog is Little Black Dress! I'm sure for the majority of women this conjures up happy memories of fun times: exciting dates, rehearsal dinners, the theater, etc. However..........
I can't think the color black in clothing choices without thinking "gig work"! Having been a performance major in college and a freelance/chamber musician for the past 30 years, I've come to know black dress as the work uniform. My closet is full of black; people often ask if I work in a funeral home. I have to chuckle at this one because I am a child of a two generation owned mortuary! Since my grandparents lived above the business, I spent many a day there. So many memories and stories ........but, I have digressed; back to the theme!
For me, the 'little black dress' is not a clothing choice I make for social events. (Actually, most of my social events take place in the barn; ah, but I have digressed....yet again! I'll try one more time to stay focused on the topic!)
I chose the music theme because for me that is the black dress!
I used CTMH Black and Daisy White cardstock. I stamped with CTMH Universal Backgrounds and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The silver ribbon is from the 'bag-o-ribbons' and the red and silver cardstock were in scrap drawers; not sure of the brands of these. I cut my red cardstock to size and used a Fiskars corner punch.
I used the M-Bossabilities folder on the white cardstock.
