A Viola for Anastasia.....and CAS(e) this Sketch.....

Hello everyone: Today I have a card I made for my little almost 11 year old granddaughter Anastasia, who tried out and made the 5th. and 6th. grade Orchestra ensemble at her elementary school playing the Viola. The music programs at the Crown Point, IN. schools are amazing. Her 17 year old sister Vanessa, who is a Senior this year, started in 5th. grade, just like Anastasia and now, Vanessa is in both the Crown Point High School Symphony Orchestra, in which she is second chair Viola and in the Chamber Orchestra, in which she is first chair. Going to the concerts is absolutely thrilling for us, I love seeing this kids up there on stage, playing beautiful music, it always makes me so happy. Here is the card I made following the CAS(e) this Sketch challenge.
This challenge blog is all about CAS(e), (clean and simple) cards, I do struggle a little leaving so much empty space on a card but I think I did ok with this one.
I have this Viola stamp I got from I Brake for Stamps a while ago, the music score in the back is heat embossed in gold, as well as the sentiment and flourishes. 
I hope you like this card, it's as CAS as I can make it, I will give it my little Viola player tomorrow.
As always, thank you very much for stopping by, please leave me your comments, I love reading them, they always make me smile.
Till next time, keep on stamping.
Maria.
