Musical Thank You Card

Gina Marie told me she needed "help" coming up with a thank you card for one of the gentlemen on the band at church. Guy cards are always a little challenging. This is what we came up with:

A quick copy of some complicated Mussorgsky sheet music and "Voila!" a lovely patterned paper for the background. Gina is a big fan of inked edges, so you'll see evidence of that. We matted the "Thank You" stamp with dark red and black. You can go wrong with that color combination-- it's so elegant looking.

It was looking a little boring, though, so we added a strip of red and two silver brads. The circles around the brads were punched from "inking practice" on some scrap paper. It's not exactly my usual style, but I like the finished product. A successful collaboration between me and Gina Marie is always something to be happy about. Haha!
