A friend asked me to make a card for a friend of hers who is very ill - "Get well soon" was not going to be appropriate and something "a bit vintage" were my only guidelines. Bit tricky really but she seemed very pleased with the finished card and exclaimed that the music was perfect for her friend so that was a stroke of luck!
I do love my book of vintage sheet music. It was very tattered around the spine when I rescued it from the charity shop (goodwill store for my North American visitors). It was probably on the verge of being too delicate to be used on a music stand and flipped over while playing so I don't feel too guilty about chopping it up to use on papercrafting. If you're using old papers for projects like this, you do need to check how they take ink. For example, it takes a long time for Versafine to dry on this one so you need to leave well alone for a while after stamping otherwise you end up with a smudgy mess!
