My friend is having a birthday soon and she is a wonderful piano player so I wanted to make this card for her. I made this card once before for my daughter's piano teacher and loved the inside but wasn't wild with the outside of the card. I was in a hurry and just didn't embellish it right so it looked only "half" done. Then when I added my sentiment to the inside of the card, I felt it detracted from the piano look of the card and I didn't like that either so that card was a flop! LOL. Do you ever have those? If you want to see my first attempt, go here. Well, it's such an amazing file that I decided to try my hand at it again and this time I LOVE it. I love to learn from my past mistakes and to improve on them. I got my inspiration for the front of the card from here. The piano card base came from Jennie Bean Crafts but I couldn't find a link for this file on her site anymore but she was making amazing files long before most other designers I have found. Anyway, I love the polka-dotted paper on the black keys and the front of the card is much nicer this time. I like how this one turned out! To fix the note problem on the inside of the card, this time I tucked a tag under the keys and it is much nicer. I hope my friend likes it!
