Happy Birthday to Sonny!

The organist that I work with at my church has a birthday tomorrow, and I wanted to make her a special card. I made a Z-fold card and used a sketch from "My Time made Easy" to get me started. Since we are musicians, I wanted to put some music on there, so I embossed the white squares with my music cuttlebug folder. I cut the bird from Gypsy Font cart at 2 inches. I used some ribbon and a new Fiskers stamp I had. I embellished the stamp with pearls, since pearls and turquoise are her birthstones.
I am entering this card into these challenges:
Crafty Catz- Fancy Folds
Delicious Doodles- Things that flutter
Polkadoodle- Pretty things with Wings
Cute Card Thursdays- Birthstone Colors
Craft Your Days away- Monocromatic
