Musical birthday card

Here is a birthday card for my oldest sister.  After comparing her to a tree when she turned 50 last year, I thought I'd be nice this time.  She plays the piano very well, so I thought this appropriate for her.   She is also very crafty (though she doesn't make cards) so I knew it needed to be well done, too.  (That sounds arrogant, doesn't it??  Sorry!!)

Challenges...
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards challenge 9 - "Fancy Folds" -easel card
Bitten by the Bug 2 - Cindy Loo - Flourish (I used one from Sentimentals)
Stampin' Sisters in Christ #132 - "Everything" -opposite of CAS --I embossed, tore, distressed, inked, stamped, and I used brads, die cuts, ribbon,  and pop dots!!

~Nestabilites labels 4
