Your card is gorgeous, and I LOVE the colors. It sure doesn't look like it is out of your comfort zone. Love the music paper that compliments so well with the image. It is weird to hear you talk about frost when we are finally starting to get some warm weather here.

Oh, how I love this image. Judi and I were talking about it the other night. I really love how you used the dark brown for your piano. Your colors of chocolate and teal are so beautiful. So yummy. I love your flowers and the litte crocheted centers. This is an image I am going to have to get. You and Judi both did an amazing job with it. I am so glad she posted her card too so that I could see boths yours and hers together.
Hugs, Nancy

Hello Kathie,
Your card is so stunning! Your papers couldn't be more perfect and you are totally right...the brown and turqoise are lovely together and I wouldn't have quessed that you were out of your comfort zone using the brown. That walnut upright piano is so rich and lush! You gave it so much deminsion. I felt like I could almost touch the wood. Your flower combo is perfect too! Great accent!
What a fun present for Mother's Day from your son! Have a great week! Thanks for your SSW post this week!
Hugs, Judi
