Friday Sketchers and Penny Black Saturday challenge

I don't know why but I always think these 2 challenge's go well together !! The Friday sketch challenge is to use this sketch , obviously ! The PB Saturday challenge theme is 'Romance'. The PB stamp is getting another inking !! It's only a few days since I last used it but as I have very few 'romantic' stamps I don't have much choice really !! As red is the colour of love I went with that, not very original is it but ,,,,, well I like it :-)I have delicately coloured the flower in light pink near to the centre but it doesn't show up on the photo, it's not just white in real life !!
The love text I made using vellum and gold emboss, and the music is the same using black card, both of these stamps are PB too.
Thanks for looking and your comments are always appreciated :-)
Right am off blog hoppin now :-)

Sketch Saturday and Cute Card Thursday Challenge's

It's my nephew's 10th b'day on Friday so I made this for him. He's quite musical, well, he's learning to play the guitar but i don't have a guitar playing dog so this'll have to do !!
I followed the sketch on the Sketch saturday challenge and the theme on CCT is metallica, so I cuttlebugged some metal, I think it works really well with the silver trombone :-)
The stamp is PB and the sentiment is a download from Funky fairy's.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate all your comments so please leave me one before you hop off :-)
