We have been fortunate enough to have Ashlee, our little rugrat's babysitter, who also happens to be an extremely talented clarinet player on a full ride at one of Manhattan's top music conservatories. She's sweet and conscientious and such a help when hubby and I need a night out. She's graduating this year, and I wanted to make her a nice card to congratulate her.
For this card, I began with today's mojolicious Mojo Monday sketch. I chose to do the circular card, as Ashlee can do an amazing trick with her clarinet called "circular breathing." She can hold a single note for over 40 minutes! I picked some bright, fun colors and used this whimsical star image, stamping twice to pop out the center star. A little bow and a lot of liquid dimensionals topped off my congratulatory card.
