Happy Valentines

A member of my choir asked me to make a Valentine card for her husband, with this image on it. She also requested a clarinet if possible and some musical reference as he is a musician.
This is what I came up with. Scraps of Clare Curd  Signature Range and Pink Petticoat Harlequin papers, plus a musical thumbprint and a sentiment and his clarinet of course.
I made the sentiment on the computer and threw the little red heart in for luck. Considering it's an odd combo, I don't think that it turned out too badly!

  19. Definately not a regular concoction - the absolute reason people come to you for commissions - you'd never put this lot together - but you DEFINATELY wouldn't find this in the shops either.

    Quite a cute card as it goes...
