Teenage Kicks

Today's card is for my youngest son Evan who will be 15 next week - 15!!! I can't believe he's that age already how did that happen? He has been learning to play guitar recently and is actually very good at it - only problem is that he likes to practice around 10pm with the amp turned up high enough for half the street to hear him - we have had to force him to wear headphones so that the only one to be disturbed by the noise is himself lol

I used the themes for a few different challenges for this one and they're all listed at the bottom of the post. The image is of course, Edwin by Magnolia and the guitar was stamped separately and stuck in front of Edwin with foam pads. Both images were coloured with Promarkers and I used Glossy Accents on the guitar to make it nice & shiny. The backing papers were from a K&Co Rock Star stack and the sentiment was Studio G.
