CCNS100: Party Music

Hello!  This week marks the 100th challenge for Classy Cards 'n Such and the challenge this week is to make something bright and festive.  And what's more festive than some music - and then you have to shake to it, right? 

For my shaker card, I used MFT Blueprint 13 as my base as well as the curved bracket tag in the same set for my shaker window.  The musical elements are from Memory Box new release:  Elegant Musical Staff and Melody Music.  Because the Staff is so thin and dainty, instead of gluing it on top and getting glue everywhere on the clear card stock, I used the inlaid die-cutting technique behind the shaker elements.  This insured that the staff spacing would not be compromised also.  I used 1/8 Scor-tape and large foam tabs to adhere all my layers after I added colorful rhinestones and sequins into my shaker window.  The black music notes were cut using DCWV self adhesive black card stock and I had them arranged across the clear card stock and onto the white as well as some rhinestones.  I like the look of them flying out the window.
