                      Time for a new challenge at House Mouse
                            and Friends Monday Challenge. 

 The theme has been chosen by our Talented Team Leader, America.  For Challenge 176, she has chosen.........."Do NOT COLOR YOUR IMAGE.  You can have as much color on your card as you want, but just not the image.

Remember, you can always have the choice of Anything Goes for any challenge.

I made a Grand Piano shaped card.  Added some music paper inside and a birthday sentiment.
Stamp is a Gruffie Cling stamp from Stampendous.  Spellbinder's oval die with tiny gold accents.
Continued the gold accents along the top of the keys of the piano.  Red dotted ribbon.  Vintage photo distress ink on the music edges.  Gold shiny paper.

Sue, what an imaginative card and great design - love the grand piano fold, and the keys you made at the bottom - how difficult it must have been to not use lots of intense colors, as that is your trade-mark - this looks amazing! hugs, de
