Love of music

My post today I made for my daughter's 16th birthday, Holly loves music and blue is her favourite colour. I thought it would be great for this week's challenge over at MTTC as the theme is music or movie influence.
My card is a teal 8x8 card, my first layer is white card which I used a music embossing folder. I then used the same teal card to cut two borders and matt them on to black card. I cut a star and layered it onto silver mirror card before putting it onto my card. I cut smaller stars for embellishments along with musical note symbols. I then stampsed out the words happy birthday and cut out Holly's name and the number 16 before adding these to the card, I finished off adding a few gems.

Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments are much appreciated x
