Less is More week 106-one layer!

Oh no, it's snowing again!! I hope this is the last of it, every time I arrange a visit to my SIL in Kent it snows. Oh well better pack a shovel, blankets and some supplies:)
Anyway this week it's a one layer challenge over at LIM towers and they want to see music in some form or another. Unfortunately Mandi is no longer continuing as she has to concentrate on her new business but Jen is staying on full time with Chrissie and that is good news.
I wasn't sure what to do and sat for ages looking at a bare card knowing that I didn't have much in the way of musical stamps. Looking through my EF's I found this Darice one and inspiration struck!

 The sentiment is an old SeeDee one and I had a musical note stamp that I stamped on shrink plastic and used them as little embellishments. I added a tiny dot of gold on each of the candles.

Thanks for visiting me and hopefully leaving a comment:)

Your card is great Val, one layer is not so easy for me.

I have to say that our challenges do seem to bring out the inventiveness of LIMettes!
Super job Val!

Hi Val,
Sorry I haven't been around much. Along with everything else my Internet has been hit and miss. Things have been disruptive here with my dear hubby taking on refurbishing my craft room all by himself. Ripping off all the skirting boards and re-routing the wiring alone has been a nightmare...and it's no where near finished. Looking at your post from yesterday your kitchen and dining room look fab. I guess it's worth all the up evil once everything is complete.

BTW your card is fab! I love your embossed candles!

Hope you have a safe journey to Kent! xx
