I can't resist rainbow colours and I was inspired by Lisa's design.

Musical Birthday

I wanted to make a "piano" card for my very gifted musical friend ... I pictured a red rose on a grand piano.

I did the piano shape with a silhouette file which I compressed so that the curve would start higher up. One of the great advantages to Silhouette - you can change the size and proportions of the shapes.

I got the inspiration and measurements of the piano keys from Dawn. She has a video too which is very helpful.

This is the front of the card ...

It opens up into an easel card as a grand piano with the "musical score" holding it in place.

But you can leave the message on the inside and the easel still holds.

... CAS Colours and Sketched #387 I flipped the design, and if you take the easel position, the piano keys are the smaller section, and the black piano top is the larger section.

Mosaic Look

I haven't used my large Kaleidoscope/mosaic Simon Says Backgrounds.  I bought 4 different ones, but haven't got round to creating with them.

I started with the Flora Background. I embossed in Princess Gold embossing powder and painted with Distress Inks. I mounted it on a cream card.

To really see the wonderful gold embossing, I need to tilt the card.
