Guitar Hero

This is a card that I have made for my eldest son to give a friend.  The friend is the lead guitar player in the band that my son sings and plays guitar in called 'Talking to Amy', so his card had to have a guitar on it.


I have made two cards to give Matt a choice, this one is quite simple, all I have used is one sheet of Best Creation Inc 'Rock Star' 6x6 glitter paper for the front and a co-ordinating sheet for the inside.  The base card is some onyx Stardream card from Joanna Sheen and I also die cut the star with my X-Cut die from the same card stock.

I stamped the numbers with my Penny Black number set 'who's counting' onto some co-ordinating paper and coloured them with Pro-Markers.  After cutting them out I glossed them with 3D Crystal Laquer.


The larger star on the inside of the card was also cut from the Stardream card stock with my X-Cut die, the smaller star was cut with a smaller die on some co-ordinating paper.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 108 - Try Something New (I don't normally do simple cards)
Lollipop Crafts Challenge 68 - Anything Goes
Crafting When We Can Challenge 12 - Big Birthdays (I hope 16 qualifies)
Dream Valley Challenge 26 - Just for Men
Hotshot Craft Challenge 4 - One for the boys

Thank you for looking.
