Accordion Birthday Card

My sweet husband just celebrated his birthday and I made this card for him. While I was at it I incorporated a couple of my favorite challenges. I followed the sketch at Peachy Keen Stamps and I did the 'no patterned paper' challenge at My Creative Time.

Here is the Peachy Keen Stamps sketch (I'm flipping it to show you how I interpreted the sketch).

Here is my card:

He he, isn't it cute. My husband plays the accordion and so when I saw this cut in the Musical Instruments set, in my Kawaii-a-Bunga Bundle from Lettering Delights, I was thrilled. I decided to use the print and cut feature on it. I printed on some pretty textured American Crafts cardstock. It really gives it a nice texture and look. My accordion is on an Action Wobble and looks pretty darn cute wobbling around. I stamped it with a Boy Mates Face stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps. The sentiment and music notes come from My Creative Time's, Wow! So Many Candles stamp set. The card base itself was cut using My Creative Time's 4x4 Journal Die + More die set.

The card was a success here. I hope you like it too!

Have a great day! Hugs- Glora
