That little someone is my youngest, MW, who turns 18 the first week of November. She's my music major and artist extraordinaire, so only a slightly out-of-the-box card will do for her.
The 18 is from the Songbird Cartridge. The notes and heart are from Gypsy Wanderings. I mirrored the notes and heart and printed one side out of a music-themed paper and the other out of the purply paper and then glued the ribbon in between the layers. Papers are from various sources. Edges of paper are distressed with Colorbox Cat Eye inks (found some really old ones lying around from when the kids were little!). The music embossing is from a Cuttlebug folder and was run through my Sizzix.
