Blue Christmas Challenges Card

Even though I'm feeling blue about the Thanksgiving holiday ending, I am getting very excited about Christmas!  While surfing some of my favorite challenge blogs, I couldn't resist combining a few to create this card for someone special.
 First, I began with the Navy & Silver palette at Dynamic Duos (challenge #30).  I used the (retired) Magnifique paper pack with Slate and Pacifica inks and the October stamp of the month, A Very Merry Christmas.
I also used the Retrosketches sketch #39 as my inspiration.  Can you see how I stamped the music staff from the Universal Backgrounds stamp set?
Self-adhesive silver trim is my favorite new embellishment!  I created the faux bow with seam binding and held it in place with a shimmer brad.  I think this qualifies for a Heart 2 Heart's BLING challenge, don't you?  I finished the card off with some silver glitter glitz gel too.
Have a blue Christmas!
