Air Guitar

Good evening, I hope you've had a good weekend.  This is a card I've made for my son to give a friend for his birthday.  They are both 15, a rather difficult age to put it mildly.

The image is 'Air Guitar' by Mo Manning and the papers are a NitWit download.  The music strip is from a kit by Hunkydory.  I followed Sue's sketch over at  Sketch n Stash and added a few bits from my stash along with a stamped tag from LOTV.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front.

Image: Mo Manning - Air Guitar
Papers:  NitWit - In the Meadow, Hunkydory - Last Night a the Proms
Tools:  Spellbinders Classic Squares (inside card)
Embellishments: button, charm and raffia from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

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

Sketch n Stash Challenge 68 - Sketch 9 (neglected items - button and charm)
Crafts and Me Challenge 48 - Blues or Blue/Greens
