PTI February Blog Hop


This is my first time participating in the PTI blog hop! I am excited to take part!
Here is what I created


and the inside



To me, spring is hearing the birds sing again and seeing the buds of leaves on the branches. I made this card for my church choir director's birthday. I hope he likes it!

I LOVE that you used the notes with guidelines. I haven't had much luck using those little notes because my stuff always looks messy, but this gives it order and adds a really nice touch. I love this card.
