A Rockin' Birthday

We've been celebrating my husband's birthday all weekend - actually a four day weekend for us! I thought I would share the card that I made for him... he really liked it!

I saw a similar card idea on one of the many stamping related facebook groups that I am in. I just knew I had to do a guitar theme for Marcus' birthday. It's a pretty simple card. I used Kraft card stock for the card base and also for the guitar. I did the guitar-like shape freehand in pencil and then cut it out. I stamped the Hardwood background stamp in Baked Brown Sugar ink (retired SU!) and then sponged some Soft Suede ink along the edges and a bit all over. I cut out a True Black circle and then used a smaller circle die to make it look like the hole in a guitar. I added some silver cord for the strings and a quick sentiment from Endless Birthday Wishes also on Kraft card stock. To finish it off, I added a few black/silver sequins and splattered some silver silk.

I hope that you like this card. I recently added a tab on my blog for those that want to follow my crafty adventure. You just need to enter your email address and you'll get updates through your email when I have a new blog post... just that easy!

Thanks for stopping by!

See ya next time.
