The one that got away

Last week's blogger problems meant that my post sharing today's card disappeared soon after posting so if you think it looks familiar you may just have had a glimpse of it before it was gone :o)

It is my husband Neil's birthday today, music is very important to him so I've created this birthday card for him, he mostly plays acoustic guitar these days but I love it when he occasionally gets a shot on his old electric one which is now Evan's and cranks up the volume for a bit of rock - making the floors vibrate in the process!

The image is one of my new set, available here, it has been coloured with Promarkers and finished off with a touch of Glossy Accents here and there. I edged the cardstock with some distress ink and stamped a couple of flourishes then cut out the guitar and stuck it to the card. The backing paper is Basic Grey Oliver and the sentiment is also from my new digi set.
