Distressed Beethoven!

Good morning!
I had another commission birthday card to make today, this time for a Brother's 70th Birthday. The request was for classical music or golf!
So I went with the classical music, especially as the lady in question kindly gave me this Inkadinkado 'Illuminata' wooden stamp, saying she doesn't really make cards so doesn't need the stamp!

Isn't it a fab stamp?!
I stamped the image using Vintage photo Distress Ink, and all the distressing is using the same ink. The 'dp' is just a Google image (I Googled 'Beethoven Music Script'). The sentiment and age were done on my pc, and distressed, and I finished with baker's twine. I also distressed the inside of the card and added the bit of music script I didn't use on the front.


Ta for looking...see you soon! :)
