For the Music Man...Viola Congrats

This card was created with my musically talented son in mind and was inspired by the sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping.  I created the musical background paper as a word document by cutting and pasting a musical image and then printing it onto three different shades of cardstock.  I used a computer generated image to print a viola shape and cut it out of the background paper. I used an Xacto knife to cut the "F" holes then matted the viola onto black cardstock.  I drew the bow and cut it out from cardstock, coloring it with colored pencils and attaching it with dimensional adhesive.  I matted the strip with the viola onto a piece of vanilla cardstock and used a Kraft card base.  I finished the card by adding the sentiment with a marker. I thought about adding the viola strings, but in the end decided to leave the image as it is for a cleaner look.

Cardstock:  Core'dinations:  Pure Chocolate, Vanilla Cream &  Krafty
Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives: Crafty Foam Tape

    I just saw your card on cleanandsimplestamping and I am just amazed how well done your card is, especially as I like strings, too. Thank for showing it and the great inspiration.
