Have a Rockin' Great 21st !!

This is a card that I made for my friend's son who was 21 recently. He's studying music and is lead guitarist in Rock Band... so I wanted to make him a themed card.... it took me a while to find an image with v-shaped guitar but eventually found one on Microsoft Office here.... but I changed the flame background to black and white because I thought it would look more cool....

The paper is 'Sprinkled with Twinkles' from Pink Petticoat. I've layered it onto silver card. The black panel is embossed which I think gives it a kind of lizard-skin look. I've added a Memory Box Virtuoso Music Die from My Crafty Heart. I have had this die for so long and so glad that I finally got around to using it!! it's gorgeous isn't it! 

I added the Sentiment to the bottom of the image before printing out. Also made the 21st circle on computer and I've mounted it on Silver Card Nestie.

and that's it really... quite a simple design but I was really pleased with how it came out and my friend's son loved it !!

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Charisma Cardz - Challenge 1 - 'Happy Birthday' ends 16th January 2013
Paper Crafting Journey - 'Anything Goes' ends 23rd January 2013
Natalie and Amy - 'Your Favourite Things'
(my favourite technique at the moment is Embossing!)

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend! I have got a cold which isn't too bad but it's making me feel tired... I have managed to do a bit of crafting though which I enjoyed.... next week I have two hospital appointments.... they always make me very tired so I don't think I will have time to play very much ... so thought I would make the best of the weekend and craft!! Winking smile
Thanks for all your lovely comments
I will catch up with you all soon!
Love and hugs

This is fantastic Sue - I'm sure it will be loved! - I always think that when you can fit a card to a person like this it comes together better because its made for that person specially. Just come in from the cinema / been to see Les Mis - it was just fabulous - I just loved it - I've seen the musical twice and it was just as good on film - I cry every time ! Hugs Judith x
