I apologize for the long gap between posts, but this post will give a little more insight into my distraction. My son is quite the little actor and landed the part of the Conductor in our town version of The Music Man. The director needed a few "towns people" and my son asked me to participate. I landed the role of Mrs. Squires and we had a blast. My favorite part was when we ladies became the Grecian urns for the town sociable and it inspired my card. The urn is stamped, shaded, and cut out to pop up at the top. I made some flowers by putting glue onto flower wire and sprinkling it with Flower Soft shavings. Once they dried, I glued them "inside" the urn and glued the urn back onto the oval shaped piece of card stock. For the background, I took a bland piece of card stock, letter press embossed and then took my scorepal and made the score lines to form tiles. A sentiment was stamped, circle punched, and pop up mounted onto the tiles. A ribbon was added to "tie" (small joke here) all the colors together. The entire thing was mounted onto a tan card base.
They say, life imitates art...now I have even more proof.
Thanks to all for the standing ovations! "One Grecian Urn, Two Grecian Urns, and a Fountain.... ;)
