April Sketch for Sugar Creek Hollow

It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and this week we have our monthly sketch for you.

I used a combination of papers from the Cappella collection by Basic Grey along with some embossed card stock to create the panels. The sheet music that I found online is framed by a piece made with the Martha Stewart deco fan Punch Around the Page set. Then I added some lovely satin ribbon and pearls to finish it off. I think this is pretty clean but elegant.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
