How Do I Love Thee?

Hello, All
Well as today is the Birthday of poet
Elizabeth Barrett Browning 
I decided to make a little card. 
As it turned out, I used two versions of the same card. 
 For version one I chose to use her famous:
How Do I love Thee? sonnet 
as the insert.
But having heard about

(Thank you Donna Mundinger!) 
I decided to make another insert for that!

M & M
(Materials and Method)
Cream Card
Inkylicious polymer stamp (unused item)
Foundations Dot and Dash Card 
Sheet of vintage hymnal music I embossed with Tim Holtz music Texture Fade by Sizzix
Black Card
Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die
Archival Ink
Distress Inks
Versafine Ink
Vintage seam binding 
Metal Heart charm
Method is quite straightforward, I think, but I am happy to answer questions.

* * * *

and my unused item is the Inkylicious polymer stamp. 
I just noticed that the lovely Vicki Romaine is having an 
Anything Goes challenge over at 
The Cheerful Stamp Pad 
and although I am not entering many challenges for a while I could not resist!
All The Best, 
Vee xx

  3. Okay, this is brilliant inside and out. Of course, I love the snarky insert! The original poem is beautiful, though. And I am so borrowing the idea of music embossing music! ;) Thanks for joining us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for the Unused challenge!
