Tickling the ivories

'Tickling the ivories' is the name of the House Mouse stamp I've used for this card - I love this stamp, but haven't used it for a while, but when I saw that House mouse 111 was to make a black and white card I thought of it. It was simply stamped with memento tuxedo black and mounted on black card. The background music paper was taken printed My Craftwork Studio tinkering with steampunk CD, changing it to black and white. I then used a couple of strips of Tim Holtz tissue tape mounted on to black card across the top - this is another card for this week's Daring cardmaker's wishi washi challenge.

It's also for:
