Music Note Birthday Card

I have a friend who is an excellent piano player.  She even tried to teach me piano when I was a child to no avail.  So when her birthday rolls around I try and create a card that has to do with music.  Last year at the Craft Fair, I purchased this great stamp of sheet music.  I made a tent card out of SU's Basic Black CS for my base in a A2 sized card.  My layer is 4" x 5 1/4" of SU's Whisper White which I stamped my sheet music in Basic Black.

I used my Sweet and Sassy Framelits to cut out two hearts.  I applied a scrap piece of Real Red CS on my base card and then popped up my layer with some dimensionals as well as the smaller heart.  I used part of the sentiment from SU's Party With Cake and popped that up as well.

For my inside sentiment, I used SU's Party With Cake as well stamped in Basic Black.  This card came together really quick, and I loved how the cutout hearts looked on the front.  We have had a very busy week.  My daughter's fiance had major cardiac surgery yesterday for a torn heart valve, and I'm so pleased that the surgeon was able to repair it and he is doing well.  We also had Jennifer for her first overnight last Sunday which was so much fun.  She was so good and definitely kept everyone's heart happy.  I'm pleased to say that our snow is melting and with rain in the forecast I hope its days are numbered!  Sarah's birthday is Sunday - hard to believe that she will be 15!!  Where does the time go?  Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,

That's a beautiful sheet music stamp and I do love the cut out heart with red in the background. An idea I'll have to file away. This is a perfect card for your friend! Good news about your daughter's fiance. That must have been a scary time. Enjoy your melting snow and Sarah's birthday!

Your card is beautiful. You did a lovely job designing it. I can't play the piano very well, but I've got many relatives that play magnificently. I just can't get the right hand to go with the left. I'm so sorry to hear about the heart surgery but Praising the LORD all went well. That is always so scary. How fun to have Jennifer for an overnight stay. What a complete delight. Time sure does go fast. Hope you are doing well, and that rain is making the snow go away.
