Music Card

It's been a while since I've posted anything here ,although I have been checking in to see what's new in blogland. Today I decided to share a Birthday card I made for my brother who just loves music . He plays the guitar, piano ,violin , harmonica and several other instruments but his favorite is the guitar . Since I already have made him a guitar and a piano card I thought this year I would give him a violin card .  I found a free printable image on Pinterest and came up with this . I copied the image twice and fussey cut the violin ,then embossed it with UTEE twice to give it a nice thick shine which was then popped up in the circle . Other supplies used : TH weathered clock, TH tattered curvy banners, Just Rite stamps Music Notes, Tonic Studio Treble Clef die . Design papers is Bo Bunny Timeless Collection and I used Tea Dye DI to sponge around the edge and on the clock .

This is the image I used from Pinterest
