Freshly Made Sketches #139

My son is celebrating his birthday on Saturday, and I wanted a special card for him.  He recently returned from Vienna and Prague where his University of Arizona choir performed.  Back in Tucson, he has an engineering internship for the summer, and he's working on the piano portion of the Beethoven Choral Fantasy which he will be performing in the fall.  Busy young man!  I haven't used a music theme for him in a long time, so thought it was time to dust off the piano stamp and go at it.  This sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the Design Team samples provided great inspiration for this card.  It's already been put in the mail to him, so hope he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for him!

Here's a list of materials I used on the card:
Stamps:
Concerto (SU, retired) - piano
Country Greetings (SU, retired) - sentiment
Universal Backgrounds (CTMH, retired) - music background
Cardstock:
Black glossy - from my stash
Gold Pearls - Core'dinations
Birch - from my stash
Inks:
Versamark ink
Memento black ink
Champagne ink (CTMH)
Other:
Black embossing powder (CTMH, retired)
Sizzix music note embossing folder
Stripes embossing folder (CTMH)
Chevron embossing folder (CTMH)
DMC black floss
mounting foam
