Violin Birthday~

Happy Friday Krafters~
TGIF!! Today, I am sharing a birthday card for my SIL. She turned 18 on the 21st and she is a very accomplished violinist. I never used the Quarter Note cartridge. So I thought her love for the violin and her birthday was a perfect union for this card.
The base is white Bazzill (standard A2 size) distressed with Walnut Distress Ink. I used the Imagine More Imagine Cartridge for the pattern paper cut at 4x5.25”. The brown layer is Core’dinations Chocolate Lovers.
I used a labels Nestability for the background and the violin is cut at 3” from the Quarter Note Cricut Cartridge. I also stamped a ticket from an Inkadinkado stamp set. The sentiment comes from Close to My Heart which was stamped with Rich Cocoa Momento Ink. I then embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder. The flowers are I Am Roses and some other flowers I purchased from Karlas001 etsy store a little while back. I also had a pearl strand I purchased from Karla in my stash. The butterfly is a charm that was also in my stash.
To give the card a little shimmer, I sprayed it with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Have a great weekend and “see” you all on Monday for another project, Krafthead~
