A Note of Appreciation

It's time for another challenge at Fantabulous Cricut, and this week is all about making music!  My middle guy has been taking piano and guitar lessons for a few years but has decided to give it a break as he transitions to high school.  I made a card to go with the gift he gave his teacher to thank her for all she's done.
I used a Creative Memories corner rounder to punch the corners of my 5x5 square card as well as the corners of the mats.  The mats are stamped with a little line/dotted stamp that I received with a bunch of goodies from Heather of Princess' Paper Projects.  The guitar playing rabbit (who we think is singing some Aerosmith songs - my son's favourite!) is from Campin' Critters and the musical notes are from Stretch Your Imagination - all of which I inked.  I also added a bit of doodling.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and punched with a Stampin' Up window punch.  I added a button, some twine and a few copper pearls to finish things off. 

I can't imagine a life without music.  If I'm not listening to tunes, I'm singing them unaccompanied!  I'd love for you to head over to Fantabulous Cricut to check out the rest of the design team inspiration - and to enter your own creation.  This week's prize is the NEW Candy Corn Kisses stamp set from My Craft Spot!
