Challenge Winning cards

Love is in the air...

You know how you hear a song on the radio and you're humming it all day... well today it's provided inspiration for a couple of challenges at my favourite challenge blogs...

At CAS-ual Fridays the challenge this week is to make a CAS card using a song as inspiration. As soon as I looked at the theme, the song came back into my head so the rest as they say was fate. 

Also it's one layer week at Less Is More and the theme is music therefore I've printed the digi straight onto the base card - it's a freebie from Carmen at Beyond The Fringe who has some wonderful freebies - give her a visit. 

I know Chrissie is very strict about one layer week so I knew I had to keep embellishments to a minimum so I used the tiniest little red things I had as I had to use ten of them! They are tiny metal stud things that can be ironed onto clothing but like all good crafters I use them on cards!
The song, of course, is Love Is In The Air by John Paul Young

Enjoy the rest of the weekend
