Party Time

This is the second card I have made for my son's best friends birthday.  He is the lead guitar player in their band 'Talking to Amy' so the card just had to have a guitar on it.

This one is a little more subdued than the last one I made.  I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday:

I rotated the sketch because it suited the image better that way.  I used distress inks to distress the edges of the image a little so that it matched the music papers and sprayed it with Spray and Shine to give it some gloss.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card, decorated to complement the front:

Card Recipe:

Image:  Delicious Doodles - Electric Guitar
Papers:  Polka Doodles - Pretty Tuff CD, Hot off the Press - Roses in Harmony
Card Stock:  Dies to Die For - Kraft
Tools:  Crafter's Companion - Spray and Shine
Embellishments:  music brad from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV

Smashing card Pauline. Great for a teenager - they are so hard to make for.
Sorry to have missed a couple of days commenting - I was getting a warning message when I logged on to your blog, it's all cleared up now thank goodness, so it might have been a gremlin in the works.
