Black and White plus 1

This is a card for a friend of ours who is a musician, lecturer, opera arranger, composer and former choir conductor among other things. I found it a bit tricky to think of a suitable subject for his card. Last year I gave him one with a huge ice cream on the front as he's rather partial to those, but this year I've just gone with a few maestros taking a bow or generally playing silly kids on a stave.
I'm quite pleased with the sentiment, which I did on the computer, I like the combination of the two fonts. In fact a mutual friend is giving him a book on fonts, so he may be able to find out all about them.
Clean & Simple yet again. I think this is more me!
I decided I fancied a change on my blog background and tried about 3 others before I settled on this one, I'm not sure I'll keep it too long...we'll see.
