Music & Movement

This was an enjoyable card to make that I did for a card swap with the theme of music and movement. I don't make the smaller cards very often and this one works out to be roughly A6 in size. I've used nesties labels dies to cut the base pieces and all the mats but this is the one I can never remember the number of, sorry! 
I've used a mixture of digis and rubber/polymer stamps here. The main image has the classical guitar and rosebud over laid onto Abstract 2 dp (all from Crafty Ann's) and coloured with promarkers. The base of the card uses the same paper that I've stamped using the free butterfly stamp from the current issue of Craft Stamper with lettuce distress ink. I stamped off and used the 2nd stamping on the paper so that the colour was more muted. I've also overstamped with a music stamp and london fog memento ink. The pink butterfly is the same Craft Stamper stamp using the twilight brilliance ink pad on a scrap of pink dp. I've kept it fairly simple other than that and my only embellishments are the 'gems' acting as a stop for the easel and a couple of small die cut flourishes.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
