Fall and Music...

...What do these two things have in common??
Well, they are part of several themes in a wonderful fun swap I recently partecipated in :o)
My two choices landed on making fall/autumn cards and other cards are reflecting music.
I absolutly adore fall, when the weather gifts us with such magnificent colors ,and I also adore
anything pertaining music...from il bel canto/opera to rock and roll etc etc...just don't ask me to sing..;o)
These are the cards I created for Heather's swap (darloudasha)
I wish I had time to make more in diff. categories....ahhh...c'est la vie! :o)
What do you think? too simple or...less is more??

Two wonderful cards! The fall card with the inked embossing and ribbon detail is beautiful. (I love that set and don't know why I just don't order it!) And your music card with its old-world feel and the fussy-cut image is stunning. The swappers and hostesses will be thrilled to receive these! {hug}
