Rock Star

Hi all, well another day closer to Christmas.  I think I'm about ready now - or is that wish full thinking.

This is a card that I made for my son's 16th Birthday, he is really into his music and is lead singer and plays guitar in a band called 'Talking to Amy' check them out HERE, they're fantastic, but I'm probably a bit biased.

Anyway back to the card

It had to have a musical theme didn't it.  The papers are Hot off The Press and the sentiment and letters are from Double Sprinkles of Kraft, a collaboration between Nikky Hall and Sharon Armstrong, I re-coloured the letters with ProMarkers.  The Guitar image is from Delicious Doodles.  I added Crystal Lacquer to the Guitar and letters, full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of the card:
