Just A Note (for Mom)

Is it Friday already?  It sure is!  And I don't know about you, but I love Fridays, especially Fridays that we have a great reveal over at Stuck On U Sketches.  This week we were to create a project using die cuts that showcase the theme "in celebration of mothers."  At first glance, you might have a hard time believing that is what my creation does, but this will be my Mom's card for Mother's Day.  She always wanted to play a piano, and I know this will mean a lot to her.  The inside sentiment says, "to say I love you very much and pray you have a wonderful Mother's Day."  I hope you'll join us for this challenge!  Here are the details of the card:

Size:  Approx. 3 3/4" x 5 1/4"
Card shape:  Life's A Party Cricut cartridge  (I love the cards on this cartridge.)  As soon as I saw this shape, I thought of a grand piano.  I ended up cutting the size of the card just a little after it was cut in order for it to work with the size of the keys.
Piano keys:  George Cricut cartridge -- 2" for the white keys; 1 1/2" for the black keys (popped with foam tape)
Flowers:  The large flower was cut using the  Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge at 4"; the three smaller flowers are Recollections flowers.
Yellow border:  Fiskars border punch
Sentiment:  Computer generated and punched using the Stampin' Up Word Window punch

I hope you like this card.  I really like how it turned out!  Be inspired!

Thank you for the wonderful inspiration!!! Your creativity is wonderful and now that you said that image reminded you of a baby grand, that's all I can see from that image! You inspired me from Pininterst and I created a card along with giving you credit at Her Craftiness (http://slasewcraftiness.blogspot.com/2014/08/susy-bs-blooming-challenge-blog-happy.html)
Thank you for the inspiration.
