Pyramid Card - Metronome

Happy Thursday!  Today I have a new to me card....the Pyramid Card!  I first saw this when checking out a stamping friend's blog....and she had the awesome idea to make this card as a metronome!  I love all things music....and what better card to give to our piano teacher?  I must say...this is probably the most fun I have had with a metronome! *wink!*

You can check out my inspiration from Vicki's blog HERE. 

I used some sheet music, washi tape, some funky lock and key brads from somewhere that I fashioned into my metronome needle.  Flowers are from Prima, gemstones and some butterflies punched from some Prima paper scraps.  
 I decorated all three sides just for fun.
This is the side that opens.  It is held shut with a magnet in the lower right corner of the white triangle piece.   This folds flat for mailing or delivering in an envelope.

I pieced the inside as well where we will write our little notes of thanks for her whole bunch of awesome.  I loved making this card and think it will be fun to make in other themes as well.

So awesome, Michelle! The music sheet was perfect as the background and I love the Washi tape. It turned out very cool. I'm sure the piano teacher will love it. Thanks for linking my blog and so happy that for once, I inspired you instead of the other way around!

What a great card Michelle - The metronome is a fabulous idea and you have executed the design beautifully. That's the most friendly metronome I have seen - I don't like the 'real' ones at all ;-)
