"You Make My Heart Beat Faster"

Vicki here...I'm up on the Craft-Dee BowZ Blog  today sharing some fun May inspiration with you!

During the month of May, the Design Team is creating with the colors of teal, white/cream and black along with a music theme.  There were so many ideas that came to mind, but I decided on a pyramid shaped card for my project. One, because I wanted to try something different, and two, because it really fits the theme!

Here's why....

Do you know what this is?  Have you ever seen one before?  Well, it's a Metronome.  A device that can be set to a regulated beat per minute.  It is used by musicians to work on timing and tempo.  The ticks represent a fixed, regular pulse. Yep, just like a heart beat!  It's shaped like a pyramid and inspired the May project I created to share with you.

Here is my Metronome/Pyramid card...

"You Make My Heart Beat Faster"

The pyramid shape was created with black cardstock and teal, leopard print paper.  I used two different music sheet printed papers...for the heart on the front of the card and to embellish the inside of the card.  The pendulum is a clock hand and worked perfectly!

The inside of the card is embellished with several different patterned papers, music notes and the sentiment.

The yummy bow was made using my Craft-Dee BowZ Tool.  It's three separate single loop bows stacked together to create a multi looped bow.  I adhered a velvet flower to the center.  Love that awesome bow?  You can create bows like this using the Craft-Dee BowZ Bow Making Tool.  Stop by the blog and purchase yours today!
