  5. Gorgeous card .... yep, like Nance said "it rocks"!!!
    Love all the elements on this card, the sponging, background stamping and I love how you have stamped the focal image onto a white bacground it really pops off the page!

  8. Denise - he will love this card. It is perfect for him. Great colours and sponging. I love the way you stamped the music on an angle on the front. Wonderful touch with the embroidery thread too.

  9. This is a great card - I really like the colors and what you did for the inside. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such inspiring comments.

  10. Hi Denise

    I just saw your comment on my blog so thanks for looking in. It is pretty weird as I today I have been wanting to make a card with keyboard paper. I don't have any so thanks to this fab card I know now where to go. My solution today was to take a photo of my husband'd keyboard and I am going to see if I can adapt that for my card-hopefully will be on the blog soon.
    I am sure your son will love this card


Thank you for taking the time in leaving me a comment! I hope I have inspired you ~ I do take the time to read each comment and value your words of encouragement! Have a great day and happy creating!
