Piano Card

Don't you just love it when you wake up on your day off and your mojo is screaming to be used?
The pianist at church had a birthday this week, and last weekend I saw this card on Pinterest, and knew it was just the card for Martha!  I wound up using the same paper collection which I had used for a mini album that I made for her wedding in 2011.  I really loved the original, but here's my take on it, and am so pleased that I already intend to make a couple more:

I had a few challenges, but figured out the best way to do the keyboard was to create a file on my Silhouette.

I had intended to make some roses using my McGill punches, but wound up using a cluster from Prima. 

I don't have a butterfly punch that I wanted, so I had to improvise.  I was about to cut one out with the Silhouette, but decided instead to look for a stamp.  (Insert groan here thinking about dragging all my stamps out to look for just the right one).  But then I remembered that I'd decided to take a picture of all my stamps and put them in a folder on dropbox, so I picked up my kindle, took a quick look, and had just the stamp I wanted in less than a minute!  For those of you that don't know what dropbox is, it's a cloud storage for files and photos. If you are interested and sign up using this link, we both get free storage: I found out about it when I lost some digi pages due to a computer issue. If you want to take a peek at my stamp album, oVKjsX4w and let me know if you are able to look at my other pictures from that link. Test the security of it if you will.
