Happy Birthday Judy

My sister-in-law's birthday is on Sunday and she has been playing flute for MANY years.  She has played in the pit for my husband when he conducted musicals, and unfortunately I don't have a picture of her doing it. When I saw this image from Mayzy Art, I just had to get it for her.  I know that she is a person who is "card worthy" and appreciates all the hard work that is put into a card since when I was at her house a few years ago she had one of my Thanksgiving cards on display that I had made several years before at that Thanksgiving so I know that she saves them.  For this card I distressed all the papers or inked the edges to destress them.  I added the three blue flowers to go with the Blue Jay on the flute.  I used a Sakura jellly glitter pen on the flute and bracelet to add sparkle to make it look metallic.  On the inside, I embossed a strip with musical notes on the bases and put a button to make it into an easel card since she uses them as a decoration and keeps them.

My second card is using this weeks Deconstructed Sketch which I think is perfect for ribbon with the four strips.  I got the mushroom image from Alley Way as a free download and thought the sentiment was just too cute.  My husband is always telling puns so I thought this was a perfect card from us.  When I showed him the card, he really like the burlap ribbon from Ribbon Carousel which I thought was perfect for the natural look with the mushrooms.  It was funny to see him feeling it like a child with a texture book. hehe.

Hi Lisa, very cute cards. Your card for Judy is just beautiful and she's going to love it as it will mean so much to her. I love your colours and your music paper and your lovely Roses are the perfect finishing touch. Don't you just love that little bird sitting on the end of her Flute. I played the Clarinet and a little Flute badly. I enjoyed the Clarinet and wish I carried on playing, I might take it up again when I have a little free time one day. Great card as usual and hope Judy has a Happy Birthday. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
