Birthday card for my faithful friend, Violeta. We started out as co-workers, became close friends, and now she is family. Violeta has done much "mothering" to me and many others over the years. And Thursday this precious friend will turn 80. She began playing piano in her 50's, still sings in her church choir, and her life touches everyone, because she loves everyone well. And, she does sing and make music with all her soul!
When I saw this card made by Wendy in her Mom's RAK gallery, I knew it was the one to case for my friend Violeta. The Scripture is so perfect to reflect Violeta's life. Happiness flows from her! The keyboard is a Google image, printed on high gloss photo paper. The piano top was free handed, and is up on thick foam dimensionals to make it appear as if the keys are below.
Wendy, thank you for your inspiration, and thanks for looking!

Your friend, Violeta, will have her heart singing when she receives this beautiful card. I can't imagine the time it must have taken to make this; those piano keys alone are eye-catching, not to mention all the other beautiful embellishments. Just a beautiful card!

I think the saying goes... good friends are the family God forgot to give to us... something like that! :-) First, a blessing to have someone like that in your life and second this card was obviously made with much love and she will feel it strongly when opening this AMAZING work of art. Love that your keyboard looks like you could set right down and play at it and your dp, flower and pearl treatment ROCK! The sentiment is so perfect as well. This is pinned and a FAVORITE for sure!
