Family & Music

As we meander a Path of Positivity, we are challenging you to Celebrate!  We will share different optional themes every month for you to celebrate!

We are moving through this month with this theme: Celebrate Something Special About Your Family!  This card is for my cousin specifically, but music cards would be appropriate for almost everyone in my family!  We have all studied music at some point in our lives and many of us have studied at the collegiate levels going on to to play into adulthood.  Some of us are music teachers, professors and/or performers and we marry other musicians!  So my family is full of music! 

   We'd like to hear your ideas at Path of Positivity.  Come share them with us!  

Remember, you may share any sort of artistic medium over at PoP:  writing, cards, journals, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, baking, needle crafts, etc as long as it is positive!  The theme is always optional.  

*   *   * 

This card features a die cut made from an oboe reed cut I created in Cricut Design Space welded to the wings of a dragonfly cut.  The background was also designed and made in CDS using cuts (mentioned below) as Prints.  I used the Print and Cut Feature and cut the card background.  I then cut the dragonfly from black and the wings from sparkle cardstock.
