Look Out World


Do you not love the colors on this card?!  I am not usually a bright color card creator, but the occasion called for celebration and these colors scream celebrate!!  The occasion? you ask.  Well, my brother-in-law just wrote the music for his FIRST Broadway musical.  They had to produce and perform it at a musical festival, but the reviews coming in are super-positive.  If you live in NYC and like musicals, check it out.  It's called Non-equity.  Then, you'll have to let me know how it was because we are not going to be able to go see it.  Anyway, this card is going to be a "congratulations, shoot for the moon" card.  Don't you love that sentiment?!  It's from my favorite Verve set "To the Moon".  Though it's more of a cute set, this sentiment is actually perfect for this type of card.
