Classy? birthday card

Just had to replace all that contest stuff with the actual card! Hope you enjoy it. Colors for this are down farther in this post!
Now onto today: This is a card I made for a musical gal whose birthday just passed. I had a bit of trouble putting this one together at first. The image is from Gina K and I love this stamp set! I used a cuttlebug folder for the greeting and some of that wonderful Stella Rose (My Mind's Eye) paper. See that orangy-brownish paper? I used the Tim Holtz distress inks mixed a bit with the powdered pearls ( I just can't remember what they are called right now. I had a blast making that paper and it happened to be the perfect color for this card!) There is a lot of stickles on the outside and the inside is glitter paper with music symbols, so it was a bit of a challenge to photograph. I found that if I place my light - which is a floor ott lamp - so it is way over my head and not immediately directed at my card, I get truer colors and not so much reflection from the flash. I have an older digital camera, and never really learned the fancy stuff as it does pretty good all by itself. 
Here are the colors for the homepage card:
E000, E02, E11, E40, E43, E47, R20, C1, C3, C5, E31, E33, E35, E37, BV17, V12, V15, V17, V000, RV29, RV000, RV21, RV23, B000, E11, E15, E18, G21, G28, G29, YG63, YG67, Y28, Y11, Y15, Y17, Y21

WOW! So many colors!! Now here are the colors for the jukebox card:
YG00, YG03, C1, C3, E000, E00, E11, E15, E18
I almost forgot to add the photo!! I also did the inside of this one.So here goes.

Hope you enjoy these two. For those of you who don't already know, the groups on yahoo are free to join. I have gotten so much in the way of learning and friendship from belonging to several - even got to meet some of the people for real! Hugs to you all, am looking forward to hearing from you. I do answer my emails if there is an address. Sometimes when you make a comment, it comes to me without an email. I think it has to do with how you set it up. I love to answer your questions but can't do it without an email. I guess by now you have figured out that I don't post often without a photo. Barb F
