Wendy's Birthday!

This is a card for my friend, Wendy who is celebrating her birthday on May 28th.
Wendy is a piano teacher and so I thought that a card featuring a piano would be appropriate.

I used a background rose paper from a Joanna Sheen (TM) CD, Fantasy Dreams.
The piano is die cut using my good old faithful Silhouette Cameo (TM).
I printed an old advert from a CD that I recently bought for the advertisement background paper.

Using a second copy of the piano advert I cut some flowers from my Silhouette Cameo (TM) and quilled them to form the roses.
The leaves are from a Papermania (TM) punch.

I added a Spellbinders (TM) tag die for the sentiment and added some ribbon at either end.

Finally, I used some clear glue peel offs and added some gold foil to enhance the edges of the background paper.

I hope she will like it!
