Play me some mountain music!

Country music was the inspiration for this birthday card.
My step-father's love for music is why I chose
a guitar for the centerpiece.
He is such bluegrass fan,
hence the color of the grass below the guitar.

The guitar, cards, and rope frame are from the Old West cartridge.
The bluegrass is from Pooh and Friends,
and the pinecone is a leftover cut from a past project.
Musical notes, along with baker's twine for the strings
 and metallic paper for shine, finish off the card front.

Words from the Oak Ridge Boys song,
"Mountain Music" are used for the inside sentiment.
This card ended up being larger than I expected,
but since I didn't have to mail it.....
all is well!
