By stamping the frame in a shimmery gold/black it gives a more retro, almost record player-like look. The circles in the mat stack kind of look like visual rhythms in a song or music notes. I prefer the mat stack stamped in lighter colors but do like the contrast it provided for this card. I used just a spot of red, with the intention of entering this into Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge here. I masked out the circle and stamped the lines from the PTI "Take Note" stamp set.
I curved the inside sentiment and added a musical note, leaving just enough room to add a short message.
My family has quite a few musicians in it...my aunt was a professional violinist, my grandma plays the piano and used to teach and my uncle plays drums...so it is nice to have a few music "notes" on hand! :)
That's all for today! Have a sunny Sunday! :)

P.S. Just a reminder, my url has changed to www.craftinginsunshine.com. I redirected it through blogger so all links to the previous url (www.monicacrafts.blogspot.com) still work. Just wanted to let you know in case you wanted to update!
What fun cards, and so appropriate for your family! One branch of my family was gifted musically...it's not the branch I grew on, LOL!!!!
Oh, I just love these and intend to try doing these little notes a.s.a.p! Thanks for the inspiration!
These are utterly darling Monica! I loved hearing about all of the thought you put into them - and had to smile about the record-player look :0) That really goes back a way!
