Lateral thinking

A little lateral thought went into the making of this card.
I loved the sketch from CPS Card Sketches the first time I saw it, but to that I have added the challenge from  Allsorts which is Spots and Stripes.
If I was a visiting member of the Allsorts DT, I would probably wonder where they were... however, the stripes are the lines of the stave on the small image... and the spots are the notes! Maybe a bit contrived, but that's what they jumped out at me as this morning!
The background stamp is French Script from Stampin' Up and the small image from Penny Black.
Play date Cafe - Black, White and a splash of burgundy!
