Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – All that Jazz

For my second All That Jazz challenge post I have made a CAS card using the grand piano and added my own sentiment.  Perfect for the piano teacher!

I have had Craft Artist 2 for some time now but I am learning to do different things every time I use it.To get this effct of the border, I used to layer 2 squares but today I discovered that it is far easier to use just one square and make a thick boder around the shape!


Today’s challenges: – monochrome

You can enter the Cheerful Stamp Pad Jazz/Music challenge up until Sunday.
