Just a Note

My great son-in-law (well, one of them) celebrated his birthday this week.  He is a guitar player, so I know I can always do a music related card for him.  He plays in a Christian band and sings in church a lot.  He even wrote and performed a song at my youngest daughter's wedding.  I'm very proud of him, so I wanted to make a special card for him.  This is what I came up with.

I used Case Study No. 23 as my inspiration.  I had so much fun with this card!  The colors are brilliant enough to make me happy, and I liked the layering and design when I was finished.  I hope you do as well!

And it also qualifies for the Curtain Call Color Challenge 65.  What great colors!  My paper didn't have a huge amount of red in it, but it is there in the stripe.   

How the card was made:

Size:  A2
Cardstock:  K&Co., DCWV
Patterned Papers:  DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack; orange/yellow dots -- K&Co. (I think)
Border Punch:  Martha Stewart
Circle and Scalloped Circle:  Nestabilities
Sentiment:  Paper Shapers Punch from Stampin' Up; Font:  Joint by PizzaDude
Guitar:  Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge
Embossing:  Cuttlebug
Twine from my stash
Pearls:  Unknown

Here was my inspiration:

And here is my take on Mercy's great card:

Thanks for visiting my blog, and for your kind words.
